Bridges have long been constructed as a means of decoration, in addition to the convenience of transportation that they provide. Iran in particular, has several examples of beautifully designed bridges that are seen as icons in the world of construction and design. While there are some bridges in Iran of different sizes, some are more famous than the others. One of the oldest bridges in Iran, with a simple structure is pol- choobi in Isfahan. The bridge is about 4 meters in width and 147 meters in length which is built between the two bridges of Si-o-se pol and Khaju Bridge .The Bridge which connected the royal gardens on the two sides of the river was a private pass way for the royal family and important visitors but not intended for public use. Windows of this building opens to different river sides and the visitors can get a spectacular view of the bridges from. The actual name is Joobi (having a raceway) which refers to the 21 water canals along the bridge which carried water to the other side. The current name Choobi, (Wooden) is the wrong pronunciation of the name which was popularized by the local people in the past century.
