I was impressed with the Zayandeh River not because it is wide and beautiful, but only because it is not parched in summer. Moreover, local people love to fish there. The river is crossed with several bridges, as the most interesting one named as Pol-e Si-O-Seh or the Bridge of 33 Bows. It was erected in 1599 by Armenian Christian architects between the main part of Esfahan and Armenian suburb of Jolfa. 33 bows were seen as symbols of the age of Jesus. In both sides of the bridge teahouses are opened. The tourists and inhabitants of Esfahan use Pol-e Si-O-Seh as a place to relax.
