Introduction of Isfahan Maran Bridge

Ever since the city of Isfahan was chosen as its first residence and its first inhabitants, the need to get in touch with other parts of the city on the other side of the river has forced them to build bridges.

For a very long time, the Marnan Bridge was a bridge between the northern and southern costs of the river in the west side of city. In conclusion the connection between the lush villages between the Marnan Bridge and its opposite villages on the southern bank of the river was possible.

It is worth mentioning that the historical date of construction of this bridge is attributed to at least one thousand years ago.

But it is clear that from a very long time ago, as the Jay Bridge or Shahrestan Bridge was the intermediary of the northernmost urban shore of Zayandehrood to the southernmost opposite shore, there was also the Marnan Bridge. The Marnan Bridge connected two northern and southern shores on the west side of Isfahan.

The Marnan Bridge is next to the Najvan Park. The core of the bridge has not changed with the building style of the Safavi era. However, it has undergone frequent repairs.

To build the bridge, the riverbed is paved on the bottom and then the foundations are built on it. There are circular compressors on both sides of the bridge, and smaller openings are also provided at the top of the bridge.

The Marnan Bridge now has 17 openings, but previously had more than seventeen openings, which have now been closed. This bridge is also called the "Sarfaraz Bridge" and it is said to have been annexed to one of King Solomon's Safavi dynasties. One wealthy Armenian sponsored this bridges construction. His name was Sarfaraz that is why this bridge came to be known also as "Sarfaraz" for some time.
