Latidan Bridge

Related to Bandar Abbas city (located in Hormozgan province)
Latidan bridge, which dates back to several hundred years ago, is considered as one of the most remarkable and important historical monuments constructed in Hormozgan Province during Safavid dynasty. The bridge was first constructed in 1627 for military purposes but was later used as a commercial route. It is located 50 km west of Bandar Abbas, near the village of Nimehkar.

Experts say that the bridge, with a length of 1,500 meters, was once one of the longest bridges in Iran. It is three times longer than Siosepol in Isfahan. According to the cultural heritage experts of Hormozgan Province, unlike many brick bridges built during Safavid dynasty, Latidan bridge was built of stone.

It was mainly built for military purposes during the war with the Portuguese, during the reign of Shah Abbas. It was then transformed into a merchant corridor when the conflict ended.

Considering the river’s high water level during the rainy season, renovation projects are underway to fortify the structure, to help it endure.  The valuable national heritage is nevertheless still at risk, and in dire need of investment and protection.
