Khajou Bridge, Esfahan

(550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
