This bridge is a cross-shaped form terrace with balustrades which is decorated by "naga" image.|
The naga bridge symbolizes the pathway from the profane world to heaven.
"naga" is the Holy Spirits of rain or river, it is deified from snake or dragon.|
The naga images of this bridge are holy snake images with rearing seven heads.
The fourteen "naga" images are placed on this bridge.
We can imagine that this bridge was made elaborately because the base of bridge was carved on too.|
