07. Khaju Bridge
This bridge was built in 1667 in Iran by the orders of Shah Abbas II. The main purpose of this bridge was to allow people to cross the Zayandeh River. This bridge also acts like a Dam and has sluice gates but the most interesting aspect of this bridge is the social aspect. This bridge was used for social hangouts. The bridge is built beautifully using an impressive array of paintings and tile work. There is a pavilion as well which now serves as a teahouse and art gallery. There was a stone seat as well for Shah Abbas on which he sat and watched the river, but now the stone seat is remnant of its former glory.
