The Shahara Bridge, or Bridge of Sighs, is the gateway to Shahara Village, tucked away in Yemen’s Jabal Shahara mountain range.

This timeless settlement was once the fortified city of the Imams, capable of sustaining itself for months during attacks. 

The Shahara Bridge was built in the early 17th Century. It served as a footpath for the women of Shahara Village to carry grain and livestock across the 300 foot deep canyon.
