The first bridge to be constructed in Hyderabad, Puranapul, is set to regain its lost glory. Urban Development Special Chief Secretary Arvind Kumar tweeted on Thursday that the repair works would be carried out in the next few days.


On his social media account, he wrote that Puranapul is being taken up immediately for bringing back its glory – removing encroachments, pruning wild shrubs, lighting, cleaning, re-carpeting road, properly planning hawker area, and creating enough space for sitting/walking. All requested to cooperate.



Due to the impact of last year's floods in the city, the bridge has been in danger of falling apart.


As per the records, it was built in 1578 by Ibrahim Qutb Shah (1550-80), the third monarch of the Qutb Shahi of the Golconda dynasty, as a link between the Golconda Fort. There is a gateway which is called the Puranapul Darwaza at the end of the bridge.
