Golden Bridge architecture is totally unique and maybe you have not seen it anywhere else. There are giant grey hands which hold the bridge. If you look it from a distance, it is like hands are holding a ribbon. Laying in the giant old hands is the elegant bridge, giving the Golden Bridge beauty contrast. The yellow colour of the bridge becomes more noticeable in the forest background.
According to the design firm of Golden Bridge TA Landscape, the bridge represents the hands of the God of Mountain to get the Thien Thai flower garden. Most tourists when visiting the famous Golden Bridge think that the giant hands are stone carvings. However, they are wrong. Bored Panda, a reputed website for designing, reveals how these giant hands were made. The designers first made the skeleton hands and then covered them with steel mesh. Finally, these hands were finished with fine fibreglass. The process seemed simple but it took about a year to complete this construction.
