Si-o-Se means 33 in Farsi. The bridges is called so as it's comprised of 33 arches. It's also known as Allahverdi Khan Bridge after one of favorite genrals of Shah Abbas I.

This 298m-long bridge was constructed between 1599 and 1602 to link the upper and lower halves of Chahar Bagh Boulvard.

It not only function as a bridge but also as a dam, and is still used to hold water today. This makes the river wider in this part of the city and giving a nice atmosphere.

There are some teahouses at either ends of the bridge which are great places to stop.
