The historical Si-o-She Pol bridge is the largest hydraulic structure in Iran. It is 295 m long and 14 m wide. The construction of this bridge dates back to Safavid era. Shah Abbas the first ordered the building of this bridge.
Set on the zayanderood river, this bridge connects the northern part of Chahar Bagh Abbasi street to its southern part. Actually, this was the main role of the bridge in the first place. The reason behind its being the longest bridge is that it was constructed over the widest part of the river.
Si-o-Seh is the number 33 in Farsi/Persian. It was named after its defining feature which is the 33 arches it has over the river. This bridge is also famously known as Chehel Cheshmeh Bridge and Allahverdi Khan Bridge.
