It is the oldest Bridge built before the Safavid period of Iranian history. Most of it's present stone and brick structure is believed to date from the 12th century.

in my view, if you have already seen Khajo and Siosepole, do not waste your time to visit this one. it is older but not as good as another.

This is the last old bridge of Esfahan. It is a little bit far from the town center but deserves the visit. The architecture is very stunning as is the architecture of others. What is remarquable here, is the level of water. It was extremely...More

One of several spectacular bridges in the City, it was depressing to see no water in the river. Global warming is very evident in Iran. Water is in the river for a few days every six weeks.

It was one of three bridges that day, all over dry river beds. Once water flowed, and at certain times of the year is released back. Now dry. We walked around, looked at tiles and got back in the bus.
