Why Siosepol is Called 33 Bridges in Native Spoken Languages of Iranians (Farsi)? 2


There are several reason to travel to Isfahan. First of all, Isfahan has many monuments to visit and the variety of architecture and constructions as well as nature and handy crafts. The prices on accommodation and food are reasonable and more over, the Isfahanes hospitality of people is well known between Iranians.

In this post I want to introduce one of the tourost attractions in Isfahan for tourists. Allahverdi Khan (the most well-known general in Shah Abbass throans) or Siosepol (in Farsi means 33 bridges) is the longest bridge (297 meters) between bridges on the Zayanderood River. who is Allahverdi Khan and why the bridge call 33 bridges between native spoken language?

It is called Allahverdi Khan because the bridge funded by him and it monitored the bridge construction. If you are eager to visit Allahverdi Khan, his picture is visible in Chehel soton palace.

The bridge is called 33 bridge because it consists of two rows of 33arches from either sides, left and right.

there are other names for the bridge also like  “The Bridge of 33 Springs”, “The Bridge of Chaharbagh” (because it is connected Chahr Bagh(Four Gardens in English), and “Zayandeh River Bridge”.
