Gavmishan Bridge

Related to Dareh Shahr city (located in Ilam province) and Pol-e-Dokhtar city
To the east of the Seimareh River where it joins the Kashgan River, stands the remnants of the pillars of Gavmishan Bridge. Today, the Seimareh River flows between the two brick pillars of the bridge of which these arches are in ruins. The other parts of the bridge are intact. Nearly 200 years ago, this bridge was brought under repair by 'Vaali' (governor) of Posht Kooh.

This Sassanide bridge has been constructed in the confluence of the Seimareh and Kashkan Rivers. Although it has been repaired several times during the past, it is almost in a ruined state now.
