Hidden among the prayer flags on the 700-year-old iron bridge, Chakzam Bridge built in the 15th century is this woman travelling in the northeast and discovering parts of herself that she never knew existed or hid them behind the thick walls that she built around herself.
Today, she feels liberated and happy the way she’s shaping out.
Arunachal Pradesh will always remain a part of her soul because this state was the reason behind a decision to leave her home, Bombay and move to the northeast. Yes, not daily travels but occasional travels that make her feel at home and at ease.
Women’s Day was celebrated sleeping on this iron bridge with the heavy gushing Tawang river beneath the suspension.

According to their authentic 
references, G.Tucci and R.A.Stein accepts 1385 as the year of birth and 1464 as year of death of Thangthong Gyalpo.
According to the biographical information in the history of Bhutan, Thangthong Gyalpo was born in the year of Wood Ox year (1384) in the village of Rinchen 
Ding in Tibet. He started building Iron suspension bridges of more than 100 meter Spans at the beginning of 15th century, while in Europe, spans of more than
 20 meters were regarded as significant achievement. The only and more than 580 years old iron chain bridge, first of its kind in Mon region was constructed by
 Lama Chag-zam Wangpo, sometime during 1420 to 1430, over river Tawang -Chu named Chag-zam where Chag means iron and Zam means bridge. The main 
motivation behind this magnificent construction was his immense compassion for the people, who due to lack of bridges over various rivers in Himalayan region, 
were usually compelled to cross them in small boats or other floating vessels etc.
During his life time, Lama Chag-zam Wangpo built over 100 iron bridges all over the Himalaya region. And  Chagjam in Tawang is certainly one of them and 
perhaps, it is, the only iron chain bridge in India built by him while such other bridges are over the various rivers in Himalaya region in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and 
other adjoining regions. Due to its unworldly nature of construction, this needs timely consecration prayer to lengthen its life. The local folks even today offer 
prayers at the metal work site. The consecration puja for the bridge was routinely conducted by the Guru Rinpoche.

CHAKZAM BRIDGE " THE IRON BRIDGE" This bridge was built by the great Lama Chakzam Wangpo between 1420-1430 century #tawang #chakzambridge #mytawang #discovertawang

Although we came across many suspension bridges but this suspension bridge on Chakzam village was really special. This iron chain suspension bridge or Chag-Zam is estimated to be almost 600 years old. Spanning more than 100 meters across the Tawang River, it represents a rare and remarkable architectural achievement. Of several dozen such Chag-Zam bridges said to have been constructed in the Eastern Himalayan region, only four remain intact today with this being the only one of its kind in India. Over a period of time for the sake of maintenance it has been modified still you can witness chains still in good condition after so many years. Locals says that it has been built by Mongolian King. Locals still use it to visit village across other side of river. .
