Siosepol Bridge, Esfahan
Categories: Bridges, Tourist Spots
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.

Park area along the river is also worth a visit, where Iranians hold picnic. Nice and cozy. Nice scenery in the middle of the city.show original
Why not taking a walk on this famous bridge? It is free, relaxing, full of people... We were lucky and the river was full of water but our guide told us that sometimes there is not water
They used to have a tea shop under the bridge close to the water it has been suppressed, because of accidents?
A memorial night on the Zayanderud which is unfortunately dry for some years now due to mismanagement of this natural global asset!
Revisited the Si-O-Se Bridge after 14 years, I am so happy to see no drought in the river but sad to know that the tea house under bridge has been closed by the government. However, walk onto the bridge and along the riverside is a good experience, especially around sunset and early evening.
Unfortunately there was no water in the river when we visited. It must me wonderful when there is water and all the tea houses are open for business.
Really cool. Go there in the evening to hang out and chat with locals.
