Photographer's Note

I've already uploaded a view from the centre of this bridge but not a profiled view like this.

Built with white marble, the bridge is 24 meters (appox.79 feet) long, 24 meters (also appox.79 feet) wide, with 24 parapets and 24 steps hence the name - 24 Bridge. It looks like a marble ribbon fluttering on the water or a rainbow lying over the lake."

I walked over this bridge and another 500 metres, before I realised that THIS was the 24 step bridge. I was expecting something more grandiose.

Part of the zig zag approach path is framed by the arch. This is to prevent ghosts crossing the bridge as they can only move in a straight line.
