Khodaafarin Bridges (Persian: پل خداآفرین‎‎, Azerbaijani: Xudafərin körpüsü) are two arch bridges across the Aras River which connect the territory of the de jure Azerbaijan de facto Nagorno Karabakh Republic with Iran. The first one with 11 arches was built in the 11–12th centuries and the second with 15 arches in the 13th century.[1][2]
