Zakho is an interesting little town. The bridge is off to one side of the downtown, next to a park that has a statue of a famous Kurdish singer. The bridge has a lovely setting, with a hill on one side. The bridge itself is attractive and has an interesting history.

In March 2015 we traveled to Kurdistan and stayed in Zaxo. We had a really nice vacation there. It is a must-do to visit the unique Delal Bridge (kurdish: Pira Delal). We shot nice photos there with the family and had a walk on the bridge. In the near of the bridge is a restaurant called "Sulav" which is has delicious Kurdish food.

Zakho is a city in Iraq, at the centre of the eponymous Zakho District of the Dohuk Governorate of Iraqi Kurdistan, located a few kilometers from the Iraqi-Turkish border. The city has a population of 350,000. It may have originally begun on a small island surrounded on all sides by the Little Khabur river, which flows through the modern city. The Khabur flows west from Zakho to form the border between Iraq and Turkey, continuing into the Tigris. The most important rivers in the area are the Zeriza, Seerkotik and the aforementioned Little Khabur. In July 2010, Zakho became the seat of the University of Zakho: one of only eleven public universities in the Iraqi Kurdistan region. Wikipedia

This is one of the most historical and famous site in zakho area. It is very nice old stone made bridge over khabor river. Also is one of the most visited site in the area so you must not miss to see this bridge if you are ever in this area.

The Zakho bridge should have been an awesome piece of history but there was so much litter, trash and lack of care. It was really disappointing. There was a rainbow. I had the best felafel I have ever eaten in Zakho!

when you visit duhok,it is a must to visit zakho which is 65km far from duhok city.zakho is connected to duhok city by very good and nice hilly road ,therefore you just need 50 minutes to reach zakho from duhok.once you entered the city of zakho by zakho gate ,you will head right then cross khabour river by a bridge then take right a little again to park your car near the historical bridge.it is a small stone bridge which was built over the khabour little river before about 1000 years during the abbasside golden era ,therefore this bridge is also called the abbasside bridge.you can not drive over the bridge ,you just walk over the bridge and also there are stairs near the bridge ,you can climb it to see the bridge and the town from above which is a nice view .

That's how it felt taking a walk at the bridge knowing it was built during the Roman Era. And it still stands magnificently overlooking the river that we were told flows through the Tigris River. It's indeed a step back in history. A must-see when in Zakho.

Delal Bridge is an historical bridge / archaeological site in the town of Zakho, built on the Khaboor River. The bridge also known as Pira Delal in Kurdish meaning beautiful or unique bridge, is an awesome piece of history. Ancient Romans are credited with constructing of the first bridge, while the present structure appears to be dating back to the early years of Abbasid dynasty (750-1517). The bridge has a lovely setting, with a hill on one side. The bridge is 114m long, 4.7m wide, and 16m high and was built using large quarried limestones. During recent maintenance, the stones similar to the exiting stones were found near Amedi around 95 km away.
