“Pol-e-Baba Rokn Aldin” or “Pol-e-Shah” or “Pol-e-HasanBeik” are all the older names of the most famous bridge of Isfahan, which is now called “Khaju Bridge” or “Pol-e Khajoo”. Khaju Bridge just like 33 Bridges is built on the Zayandeh River in order to ease the commute from the monastery to the “Takht-e Foulad” cemetery.
The bridge was built by the order of Shah Abbas II Safavi in 1650 and it has a length of 133 meters, a width of 12 meters, and 24 spans. In the middle of the bridge, there exists a building called “Biglar Beigi” which was the temporary domicile of the king and his family.
Khaju Bridge is located in the Khaju neighborhood from which the name of the bridge comes. This bridge is located on the west side of Si-o-Seh Pol and is facing “Naghsh-e-Jahan Square” “Makineh Khajoo”, “Sheikh Lotf-Allah Mosque” and Constitutional House of Isfahan from north and “Takht-e Foulad” from the south.
