Si-o-Se pol 2017-03-06

Si-o-Se pol means 33 arches in Farsi. The bridges is called so as it’s comprised of 33 arches. It’s also known as Allahverdi Khan Bridge after one of favorite genrals of Shah Abbasi.

It not only function as a bridge but also as a dam, and is still used to hold water today. This makes the river wider in this part of the city and giving a nice atmosphere.

The Bridge of Allahverdi Khan across the Zayandeh Rud is a continuation of Chahar Bagh, the principal street in Isfahan. Built at the beginning of the 17th century at the order of Shah Abbas, it is named after the general-a famous war- chief- who was put in charge of the work. It is also called the Bridge of 33 Arches, or SioSe Pol.
It is 45 feet wide and 175 yards long but- although it is impressive looking- it does not have the same archaeological or aesthetic interest as the two other bridges farther downstream
