The Nine-Arch Bridge
The nine-arch bridge in the Ella area is located in Demodara Circle; its length is 24 meters and its height is 91 meters. Nine breath-taking curves make it an absolutely beautiful place. A forest grows behind the railway, and tea leaves grow underneath. It is truly one of the most amazing places to visit in Sri Lanka.
The interesting thing about this bridge is that it is completely made of rock, brick, and cement, without using steel or metal throughout the structure. The bridge was commissioned in 1941, and it is said that World War I broke out while the bridge was being constructed. Steel and metal materials previously determined to be used in the bridge were reassigned to be used for military purposes.
The materials were assembled into the stone, brick, and cement framework at the time, and the development of the bridge still continued without doubt.
There are several routes from Ella city center to the Nine Curve Bridge. One way is to walk along the train tracks from the Ella area. I know this sounds like the least sensible advice ever, but it’s actually wide on both sides of the track and isn’t terrible at all. Trains don’t come very often, and you’ll almost certainly hear them coming, so you’ll be able to get to the side.
Another way is to take the winding trail from the start of the Little Adams Peak hike. It’s not really marked at all, but most locals will point you in the right direction towards the Nine Arch Bridge.
As a world-famous tourist destination, Ella is a part of the global tourism industry and is highly influenced by contemporary world tourism trends.
