Si o Se bridge or Pul e Si o se... More

Si-o-se pol is one the most beautiful and historical bridge in Isfahan. When there is water running in the river (zayande rod) you'll have a excellent vieu from the bridge. Some times you can see some of local singing there and people enjoy it.

This is a must see attraction. The river is amazing. At night you will find locals and foreigners walking near the river and people in groups create a positive atmosphere.

Its a fun way the spend a night walking from bridge to bridge, soaking up the atmosphere created by locals. Be sure to take a snack to enjoy along the way or have a picnic like the locals along the newly filled river.

I was told by a local people that the river has been dried maybe for few years already, so no more views of bridge with reflection on river unless you are very lucky. This is the reason why I bought a postcard which I believe was taken years ago when the river was still there. You would also be able... More

Took a lovely walk along the river bank from Khajou Bridge. But there is not a drop of water in the river. The river bed looked very dried out and for a long time. The bridge is very beautiful and more so in the evening when the lights were on. But one can't help wondering whether all those photos with... More

Few places implants the feeling of history under your skin…This Bridge is one of them. Visit in the evening and in the season of river+water (unfortunately usually the river is dry up).

Unique Architecture, with nice Arch's. Unfortunately the river is Dried ! due to damp build to reserve water upstream. Lower level of bridge, you can see ceiling decorated with fixed pattern. You'll find steps separated by short distances, these steps used to be little above water level, so you can jump across the bridge from lower level. TIP: Now, you... More

Probably the most famous of Isfahan's bridges, and even longer and older (commissioned in 1602) than the nearby Khajou Bridge, the Si-o-Se Bridge excels with its construction of 33 arches, therefore also called the Bridge of 33 Arches. It is surrounded on both sides of the river with a beautiful park landscape. Unfortunately, due up upstream water diversion for agricultural... More

The longest of the historic bridges, this structure is beautifully proportioned and great for a stroll. Afternoon sunlight is best for pics. It is lit up at night which makes for great photos as well. Walk across the river on the riverbed level and back on top of the bridge.
