Khajou Bridge, Esfahan

4.7
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 old bridge across the shallow river, waiting for the snow to melt season. Ideal location to selfie, on top of the bridge when the flowers bloom brightly in spring, with the dome connecting the tail each other deeply lost in maze-like suction hun, you deserve to.

  • A must see place in Isfahan. April is the best time to visit there. Definitely the most beautiful bridge in Isfahan. Most of the time you can find people singing and playing music there.
  • Khaju Bridge is not just one bridge of Isfahan but it is most famous bridge in Iran and has been selected among the 10 most beautiful bridges in the world. It also works as a dam using hatches located on the columns. It remain busy with local Iranians during day and evening. The atmosphere looks more beautiful with flowing water of Zayande river but when it dries up, it looks boring to me. In the evening, lighting creates a majical effects. Good place to visit during day and during evening too.
  • This monument is very beautiful and amazing. It's so impressive that you will not be tired of seeing it.
  • While in Isfahan you have to see this marvelous bridge. Do it at night when the bridge is covered in light. Also just listen to the persians singing under the bridge it was really great experience for us
  • Khajou bridge is a dreamy and magical bridge which is unbelievably amazing and unique. It's a live place where you can feel the live atmosphere of the city. unfortunately Zayandarud river is dried now and without water in the river , this bridge is no more like what it used to be but still because it's old and magnificent architecture it definitely worth a visit.
