Si-o-Seh Pol or the Bridge of Thirty-three Arches in Esfahan (a.k.a. Isfahan) Iran.

This bridge is well loved by Iranians and they flock there in their hundreds, if not thousands. It is for pedestrians only so no chance of getting run over by a car or motorbike.

It was packed when we were there, both during the day and at night, probably because people had taken time off for Nowruz (New Year).

They say if you’ve been to Esfahan you’ve seen half the world. I really liked Esfahan and wished we had stayed there longer than four days. Oh, well, there’s always next time I suppose! ;-)

Further details of Si-o-Seh Pol can be found below which I got from

Like many other of the great monuments of Isfahan, the Si-o-Seh Pol (meaning Bridge of 33 Arches) was built under the great Shah Abbas I. Under his rule, from 1587-1629, the Persian empire became one of the most powerful in the world. Abbas was the one who moved the capital from Qazvin to Isfahan, and changing the face of the new capital into becoming one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The Si-o-Seh Pol was built between 1599 and 1602.
