Wellesley Bridge, over the Cauvery at Srirangapatna, was erected in 1804, under the direction of Dewan Purnaiya, at the cost of 5½ lakhs, and named after the Governor-General, the Marquis of Wellesley. It is an interesting specimen of native architecture, being composed of stone pillars, capped with stone corbels, and surmounted by stone girders, on which the flags of the roadway are laid. Though rough in construction, the bridge has survived the heaviest floods for a century without injury. That was a description written about the bridge about a 100 years back!
