It was built during the Roman Empire but it is well preserved. The surrounding area is very beautiful.

Part of our trip to Mt Nemrut - we saw some of the most outstanding monuments steeped in history! Truly remarkable and well worth the trip

The view around is stunning. The bridge, for what I know is built during the Roman Era and is still in good condition. There're 3 pillars instead of 4 due to one being purposely removed since the old time and was not due to the cause of time.

Built by Emperor Septimus Severus in the year 198 by the Roman legion the bridge is fully intact. Van drops you on one side you walk across and it meets you on the other. Given its isolation and size it is a great bridge to study how the Romans built structures. Two tall columns at the entrance on one side,... More

It's amazing how well kept this VERY old bridge is! If you walk across it you'll be able peak over the edge and see the fisherman or swimmers in the water below underneath caves and hillside - very pretty

Coming from Kahta this bridge would probably be your second stop after Karakus Tumulus. The bridge is impressive in size and well restored. Of the four pillars, two at either end, three remain having ancient inscriptions. If the weather is good and you are enroute to Nemrut Dagi plan some time to have a swim in the relatively fast flowing... More

Although it is less impressive than Malabadi Bridge in Silvan Province, I still consider Severan Bridge as beautiful constructed one by the Romans. Located in one source of Euphrates River surrounded by high rock in one side and open space on the other side. During our visit in summer time where the water level was low, a lot of locals... More
