Red Bridge, Yerevan

2.8
The Red Bridge is a ruined 17th-century bridge on the Hrazdan River, in Yerevan, Armenia.
It was called ‘red’ because as it is built of red tuff. The bridge was also called "Khoja-plav bridge" for Khoja-plav, a wealthy man from Kanaker who financed its reconstructruction.
The total length of the bridge was 80 meters and its height was 11 meters. It had 4 arches. Two were in the middle and were squiggly, the other two arches were on the banks of the Hrazdan River.
Before the 1679 earthquake there was a bridge in the same place but it was ruined by the earthquake. It provided economic connections between the Yerevan Fortress and the Ararat Plain.

  • I was intrigued by the fact that it was the only bridge in the seventeenth century when it was built but now it is a disappointment because it shows up in ruin and in bad condition. You just understand that the name comes from the color of the material. It's not worth looking for unless you value the area.

  • Waste of time. Hard to find. Not much left. Almost nothing to see because of hard access and kind of road constructions.  more »

  • Հրազդանի հին կամուրջը կառուցվել է 1679 թ.-ին, մեծ երկրաշարժից անմիջապես հետո։ Կառուցել է մեծահարուստ վաճառական Խոճա Փիլավը, որի անունով էլ կոչվել է։ Այլ անունով հայտնի է, որպես «Կարմիր կամուրջ» (Քանի որ կառուցված է եղել կարմրավուն տուֆով)։
  • A 17th-century bridge. Sadly ruined
