This bridge is a magnificent infrastructure in the island symbolising the improving the relations between China and Maldives and is therefore named the China Maldives Friendship Bridge. The beautiful entrance to the bridge remarkably depicts Islam along with the unity and nationalism of Maldives.
It offers mesmerising views around while making the commute for the locals extremely convenient.
