Info Pedia : Sudarshan Setu



The Prime Minister has officially opened the Sudarshan Setu, a cable-stayed bridge that links the Okha mainland with Beyt Dwarka island in Gujarat.


The Sudarshan Setu, India's longest cable-stayed bridge extending over 2.32 km, boasts a distinctive design adorned with verses from the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita and depictions of Lord Krishna. Additionally, equipped with solar panels capable of generating one megawatt of electricity, the bridge serves the dual purpose of facilitating transportation and cutting down travel time for pilgrims heading to Dwarka and Beyt-Dwarka, offering a viable alternative to the traditional reliance on boat transportation.
