Khajou Bridge, Esfahan

(4.7/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • Impressive work from visit by day but don't miss illuminated at night when it is frequented by locals who gather for tea, eating, smoking, chatting and singing.

  • It's free to the public. It's nice to take a leisure walk across the bridge, it wont take you more than an hour to finish the two decks. Try to whisper at one corner of the dome and the other party ca...  more »

  • 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.
