Khajou Bridge, Esfahan

Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • Visit towards sunset and see locals gathering for their summer picnics on the Zayandeh river. Its a beautiful bridge and one of Esfahan's landmarks not to be missed.  more »
  • Beautiful, charming sight of the Isfahan medieval bridges. Thank God the water was filled with csónakázókkal, respectful of the River, parks and bridges.

  • This is a great place to visit, especially at night. Don't forget to walk down the halls beneath the bridge to see the people singing local and folklore songs. It's just fantastic.
  • Pure Iranian art shaped to be practical. This very bridge had been a semi-palace to the kings and is the most atractive bridge in Isfahan.
  • Love everything about this bridge... how each side gives a different atmosphere as well as the ambiance of the lower and upper levels of the bridge. Love it.
  • Another very nice bridge. It's shorter tahn that one with Si-o-se Pol (33 poles) but as well very nice. There were many locals on and around the bridge enjoying their time while eating or smoking a waterpipe.
  • Nice place to rest between two visit. Nothing really special but a nice bridge.

Where to stay in Esfahan

Esfahan includes a smattering of accommodations that provide variety, if not depth of choice. Along the main Chahar Bagh drag and the streets that lead off it, you'll find a few fairly basic hotels, providing decent rooms in the city center, close to the main attractions and services. Hostels can be found, with dormitory rooms providing particularly good options for budget-conscious travelers who want to be right in the thick of things close to the main square and the bazaar. The most luxurious hotels in town lie further to the south, set in historic buildings overlooking the river.
