    The Best Everlasting Passages of Isfahan Bridges

    Bridges have been constructed across the river in Isfahan since Sasanian era 224-651. By the time Isfahan had been designated as the capital of Safavid dynasty, building bridges became a part of the urban expansion. Built in a harmony with other imperial buildings, Safavid bridges were multifunctional.They were masterfully built not only for crossing the river but for controlling the water flow of the river to irrigate the nearby gardens and also for recreational purposes. All in all, there are thirteen bridges built on Zayandeh-Rud. However, we want to introduce the most important and accessible ones you can visit in Isfahan. So, we will go over the bridges one by one from the west to the east.

    , also known as Marbin, a word derived from the Mehrbin in Zoroastrian culture, is reputed as one of the oldest bridges on Zayandeh-Rud.

    Joui Bridge (also known as Joubi or less formally as Choubi) is one of the relics of the Safavids. It was built in 1655, when Shah Abbas II was in charge of the kingdom. It was a bridge built specifically for the royal family, connecting the royal gardens on either side of the bridge. Unfortunately, no trace of these gardens is left today, gardens such as Haft-dast, Ayeneh-khaneh, Namakdan, Kashkul, Bagh-daryacheh, and Saadat-Abad.  

    Joui Bridge, also known as the Saadat-abad Bridge, has 21 arch-shaped sluices, along with two pavilions (shahneshan) built at intervals in the middle of the bridge. These shahneshins were used by royal ladies,...
