The Most Ancient Useable Bridge in the World

This bridge is located at the center of the southwestern Iranian city of Dezful, in Khuzestan Province, and connects the eastern and western parts of the city. It has been a crossroads connecting the cities of Shushtar, Andimeshk and Dezful since very old times. According to historical accounts, the Dezful Bridge was built in 260 AD when Shapour I, the powerful Sassanid king, make 70,000 Roman captives to build the strong bridge. The bridge has 14 mouths and the Dez River flows underneath. The structure had been first repaired by the Iranian king, Azed-od-Dowleh Deylami, followed by further reconstructions under Safavid and Pahlavi dynasties. The pillars of the bridge, however, have remained unchanged as they were built by the Sassanid king.

The foundation for the bridge is said to be 1700 years old and goes back to the Sassanid dynasty. The bridge was founded by the order of the Sassanid king, Shapoor I, using seventy Roman prisoners of war. The bridge has been repaired and rebuilt over the years by King Azdodole Deilami, Saffavid and Pahlavi dynasties. Cars are no longer permitted to use the bridge, because of its historic value.
