This bridge connects the western and eastern part of the city and in the past it has been considered as a major magnificiant highways in the country, connecting Jondi shapur and Susa. The foundation for the bridge dates back to the Sassanid era. The bridge currently has four large arches, and between every two of these is a smaller arch. It was built during Shapur l when the Roman Empire Valerian was defeated in the battle, remain of his captured army ( about 70 thousand Roman prisoners) were asked to build the bridge. It has got so many names through different times just like Andamesh, Shapur, Shadravan and Dez.
It has been repaired several times during the reign of kings like Azadodowleh Daylami( 4 century), the Safavid, Qajar and early Pahlavi periods. Remnants of ancient mills can also be observed near the bridge. These days cars are no longer permitted to use the bridge, as the result of its historic value.
