Siosepol Bridge, Esfahan

4.5
With 33 stone arches spanning the Zayande River, Siosepol Bridge cuts an impressive double-deck figure. The bridge extends for some 300 m (984 ft) across the largest river in central Iran, a true masterpiece of stone masonry constructed in yellow brick and limestone by one of the greatest mathematicians of his time. Marvel at this feat of stonemasonry while walking the 14 m (46 ft) wide lane across the bridge, completed in 1602. Explore the side corridors of its upper deck, as the water rushes below. One of the most impressive bridges in Iran, this well-lit structure makes an exhilarating spectacle day and night.

  • On this historic bridge Iran's young people come together to chit chat and picnics or corn to BBQ. Well maintained bridge that is illuminated. Too bad the river dried up for several months by which the bridge less comes into its own and therefore no reflection of the evening lighting

  • Beautiful old bridge over a surprisingly shallow river. When the water is low and you can walk under the bridge, then note the small inscriptions in some of the stones of which the bridge has been made. Those were the signs of the workers who put those stones there. By these signs the rulers could see which worker placed which stone, and therefore they knew which worker to pay for it. While the Greeks and the Romans widely used slaves for this kind of work, the Persians used this system and paid their labourers for their work.
  • Literally meaning "Thirty three bridges" Si-o-se-pol is indeed the most popular and celebrated bridge in Iran. Thirty three arches form this lovely bridge. The bridge is a very romantic place for walking. You can just sit on the bridge and admire Zayande rud. Or you can just watch the Iranian youngsters who crossing the bridge.
  • For this location tickets or pay for the input do not need. Guide travel is not necessary. In the history build bridges can just before the meeting on the Internet read and better my suggestion to spend time in place drink tea or coffee at the site that preferably with brought you and enjoy the view is. Attention in place quality bathroom is not good if the bathroom need hotel bathroom use.
  • Good for tourist, relaxing but its sad that there are no waterin tge river
  • An ancient bridge made by safaviye dynasty. Magnificent architecture and spectacular view.
