I have crossed this bridge many times, it has a very nice tea room. The bridge leads to the now mostly Armenian Julfa district.



Built about 1650 by Shah Abbas I as a dam. This very attractive bridge is 132m (435') long (shorter than Siose Pol).

The bridge has two levels, the lower level regulates the flow of river by locks. There are remains of stone seats built for Shah Abbas I and his friends to sit and enjoy the view. Also, in the middle, a structure was built that was only used by Shah Abbas I.

This is a wonderful place to visit at night. Have a cup of tea at the teahouse and enjoy the bridge and the river.

Dubai's Mile-Long Super Bridge Set for March Construction

Dubai's Mile-Long Super Arch Bridge Set for March Construction - Photos - Fxfowle - Popular Mechanics

Here we were thinking that Minnesota's next-gen St. Anthony Falls Bridge was kicking up the next generation of mega engineering a notch from even the quake-proof Bay Bridge Skyway. But leave it to Dubai to build it way harder, faster and stronger—or, at least in the case of this newly approved design from New York's Fxfowle architects, way cooler.

As if the Burg Dubai tower wasn't already taking the worldwide skyscraper race to new heights, this as-yet-unnamed span will be the world's largest arch bridge, with 2000 vehicles set to cross its 12 lanes—per hour, in each direction—when it's slated for completion in 2012. At 670 ft. tall, Dubai's next super structure will stand higher than the George Washington Bridge (604 ft.) but fall short of San Francisco's existing Golden Gate Bridge (746 ft.).
