Khaju Bridge Iran
The Khaju Bridge was built by the Persian King, Shah Abbas II, during the 17th century. It has 23 arches and the bridge also functions as a dam, controlling the waters of the Zayandeh river it looks over. The remains of stone seats, built for Shah Abbas II to sit on and admire the view, still remain. In the center, a pavilion was built exclusively for his pleasure, originally as a tea house.
