Malabadi Bridge is the widest arch among the stone bridges in Turkey and the near east. The bridge is within the provincial borders of Diyarbakir. On both sides of the arch, on the inside, there are two rooms used as shelter by the caravan and passengers, especially during the harsh winter days. It is said that these rooms, which were also used by the bridge guards, were previously connected with the corridors and the bottom of the road, and the footsteps of the incoming caravans were heard when they were further away through these corridors.
