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.

  • 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.
  • Architecture is great. Lovely bridge Wish they could return back life to river or make artificial lake around at least
  • Very hard to find a parking lot. Not recommended to go when you can instead easily visit pole khaju
  • Great historical place. The water only runs 2 times per year and this is the best time to see it. It's the people that make it special, very friendly and extremely accommodating.
  • Nice architecture. Especially beautiful and romantic at night. No water in the river in winter though.
