Sacred geography - bridges

Physical bridges take on the symbolism of bridges.  Numerous bridges exist which have no obvious use other than to link sacred places.  Any bridge - physical bridge - that lies on a straight path and links sacred places is thus a potential part of the sacred geography.

You often find such bridges duplicating one another - two bridges for example or even more  - over a river or stream but almost side by side, this is a very clear indicator of the sacred nature of the bridge.

An arched shape often also indicates a sacred bridge, as it mirrors the shape of the Egg - a symbolic reference to a link to the wider spiritual world.
