Pira Delal in Zakho

Pira Delal (The Bridge Delal) is an ancient bridge over the Khabur river in the town of Zakho, in southern Kurdistan which is about 115 meters long and 16 meters high.

Pira Delal in Zakho

Pir means bridge and Delal means dear or beautiful in Kurdish, "Pira Delal" means "beautiful bridge" (though not in an esthetic sense, but more of something that's unique).

The name reflects the way the bridge is seen among the local people as well as tourists.

Pira Delal is believed to have been first built during the Roman era, while the present structure appears to be from a later date, Kurdish people all over Kurdistan visit the great Pira Delal as a monument of peace and enjoyment throughout the family. One of the legends regarding construction of the bridge relates that the hands of the builder were amputated to ensure that the bridge would remain unique.
