Situated at the entrance to the city of Hasankeyf, this bridge spans the Tigris River. The remaining architectural elements of this bridge indicate that it must have been an imposing structure when it was built. The bridge was constructed using stone and brick material.

The section of the bridge, oriented towards Hasankeyf to the south, sits on rocks. One of the largest bridges of its time, the structure consisted of four or five large arches, with the middle arch being the largest.


Historical sources relate that this arch was in the form of a wooden swing bridge. Only the bridge abutments in the river and one of the arches exist today. Two of the bridge abutments are under water. Another abutment is on the river bank and another one is on land.

However, all of the abutments are underwater during the flood season. Triangular flood buttresses can be seen on the upriver side.

There are circular buttresses, which taper towards the top, on the estuary side. The surviving arch of the bridge is an ogee arch with two centers.

Parts of the bridge deck have been turned into a garden, in which traces belonging to the original parts of the bridge can be seen.

According to the information provided by lbn Shaddad, a 13th century writer, there was a wooden section of the arch, in the middle of the bridge. This section was turned into a swing bridge during enemy attacks.

As such, the bridge became a structure for the defense of the city. Those who were on the bridge during attacks took refuge in rooms and corridors under the bridge. Hasankehf travellers to the city have provided information regarding this swing section in the middle of the bridge.


Barbara points to a gap on the bridge, which is considered the reason that the bridge fell down. Travellers have indicated that there tarii depictions of animals on the abutments of the bridge. It is thought that these were representations of the signs of the Zodiac, as on the Cizre Bridge.

There are no inscriptions on the bridge. According to lbn Hawkal, the bridge was built by the Artukid Fahreddin Karaaslan in The Artukid Emperor Dawoud reigned the area as a subject of the Seljuks during this period. An architectural and archaeological survey, Londra,
