in Hasankeyf, for entering, we should before pass the Tigris. Nowadays, we pass the river by a modern and steeled bridge, built next to the old bridge of 1116, which only the basis and more... an arch remain, and three stoned pillars that spring out of water like three fingers showing the sky. The bridge was famous in its time and the Arabian geographer Yakut (1079-1129) described it like one of the most beautiful works he ever saw. The last mention of that bridge came from the Italian traveler Barbaro, who saw it still undestroyed in 1510.
