Ottoman palace and Byzantine bridge

The Byzantine bridge (Rumi Bridge) is the name of the district and a bridge in the north of Tehrān and of the area of ​​Shemirān (Tehrān region). This ancient bridge, which dates back more than 80 years ago, is located on the Darband river.

It is said that its name derives from a bridge in the city of Dezful that in the Sassanid era was built by the Byzantine prisoners or another reason of this denomination may be its proximity to the garden of the Embassy of Turkey (in the nineteenth century, one of the ambassadors of the Ottoman government built in this area a garden and a building that became known as the Ottoman palace, in the past the Ottoman Empire was known as the Roman Empire of the East) and according to an architectural expert another of the reasons for this designation is to be found in the architectural genre of the building.
