Khajou Bridge, Esfahan
(4.7/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Spanning the Zayandeh River with 21 graceful stone arches, Khajou Bridge creates a striking profile. Take a scenic walk across the structure, which extends 132 m (433 ft) in length and a little over 20 m (65 ft) in width. Explore corridors of its upper arches to get the best view of Isfahan. Stone platforms at the foot of the arches make a popular gathering spot for locals who come to listen to the river and socialize. Originally built by Tamerlane's successors, the bridge underwent a major renovation in 1642-1667 by Shah Abbas II following the model of a 33-arch bridge downstream.

  • The two main bridges in Isfahan, of photo interest, are the Khajou Bridge and the Sio Sepol Bridge. It is difficult to be at both when the light is at its best so if you can visit on two separate days...  more »
  • It is curious to see how groups of people are formed spontaneously to talk or to hear or sing traditional songs and music, is a pleasant visit best avoid the hours of heat. Is a little strange the walk by a bridge over a river that not exists but that not you removes charm to the visit

  • The bridge was built in the year 1650 Hajj and became one of the symbols of Isfahan. Under the bridge were equipped with gateways in order to regulate the water level in the river and use it for irrigation. Now there is no water and regulate nothing.. For the inhabitants of Isfahan and tourists-a place for Hajj bridge walks and rest.

  • Most beautiful place in the world. A must visit if you're in Esfahan!
  • It is the best one. Note that there is no water in summer, you can walk on the river bed. Around midnight there were groups of people singing under the bridge. It was great.
  • A little less popular than Allahverdi Khan bridge but in my opinion much more interesting and beautiful. Beneath the bridge there are some Iranians resting in shadow and sometimes singing songs which can give this place a little bit of magic.
  • Very romantic scenery at night and not that crowed than the 33 pol.
  • interesting architecting.
