“Walk along the river to this bridge at sunset”
Review of Khajou Bridge

Khajou Bridge
Ranked #6 of 81 things to do in Esfahan
Attraction details
Reviewed April 8, 2015

We enjoyed a walk along the river to see the Khajou bridge during our second visit to Esfahan. This time there was water in the river, which made the whole atmosphere much better. Apart from the amazing architecture, we loved the singing and people gathering at this bridge at sunset.

This bridge is one of the master works of Isfahan's school of architecture during the Safavids,constructed by the order of Shah Abbas the second in 1650 AD. In he middle of this bridge there is an octagonal shape building called Beiglar Beigi (alcove)which functioned as a seat to entertain Shah Abbas II and his guests while holding pre-Norooz and other annual celebrations. The bridge is 133 meters long and 12 meters wide. It is the only bridge on Zayandehrood, embellished with polychrome tiles.It enjoys 21 sluices (spans) in different sizes.The foundation is designated in such a way that can be used as a dam in case of water shortage.
It has a spritual atmosphere that some people come there and start singing a song. The cars used to pass this bridge until 35 years ago.

The beige has a nice architecture in somewhat the widest part of what is left of the Zayanderood river. The reason for selecting widest part is to show the builders power to do it.
It is also built with Sarooj not cement. Sarooj is made from egg's white.
Although Siose bridge is older I prefer this one since it has more details. Unfortunately being outside the water because of dries river is damaging the bridge base.
Also if u r visiting the bridge at night remember to visit the stone lions, if u stand next to one and loot to the others eyes u can see them glow right back at you.
