The chancellor of Shah Abbas II constructed the “Bridge of 33 arches” or Si-o-Se Pol Bridge out of stone in 3 years. The bridge is located on the south part of the end of Chahar Bagh Avenue over Zayandeh Roud River which passes through Isfahan city. It is 13.75 meters wide and 298 meters wide. At the beginning of the river where the water current is faster the bridge is thicker in plane. Thus you can find more arches at this part of the bridge and that makes construction of some tea houses possible at this part. This construction is the largest construction on water in Iran and its high walls act as shelters for the people passing on the bridge. You can listen to Persian traditional music here and read books or eat snacks and enjoy your picnic time near this wonderful attraction and piece of architecture especially when eater flows into the river. Do not miss the river during night time when the play of lights near this attraction makes it a scenic view worth seeing.
