Dezful Bridge

Dezful Bridge, the world’s oldest bridge which survived almost 10,000 years is still safe to drive.
In 260 AD under the Sasanian king Shapur I, this bridge was constructed by the Roman captives. This ancient bridge has 14 spans to transfer the Dez River. It’s made from Lime and Stone mortar and been renewed by Deylamian, Safavid and Pahlavi dynasties but its columns reveal the Sasanian era.
Dezful Bridge or Sasani Bridge in Dezful city is stretched from east to west and connects Andimeshk, Sushtar & Dezful traffic.
Recently, a new bridge is building to safekeeping this masterpiece.
