Malviya Bridge in Varanasi, India. It's a double decker bridge, a rail line uses the bottom part & cars/pedestrians use the top.
Sad to think just a few years ago many people were killed or badly hurt on this bridge. There was a procession using the bridge to get to a religious gathering. Someone started a rumour that the bridge was collapsing and there was a stampede.
