Khaju Bridge

Location: Isfahan, Iran

Architect: Shah Abbas II

Built as a crossing, damn and public meeting spot--octagonal pavilions offer awesome views--Khaju Bridge was constructed around 1650 AD on the foundations of an older bridge. While much has been lost to time, the bridge originally featured ornate artistic tile works and paintings. Khaju is 345 feet long and 50 wide with a total of 23 arches.
