I have been searching for historical structures in the province of Van, Turkey, by examining the publicly available satellite imagery like Bing Maps. There is a historic bridge near Kaçit, Çatak. Its name is Zeril Bridge. I tried to figure out the places which are connected by the bridge. The two sides of the stream seem to be very steep and it seems to me that the bridge is situated in a strange location.
From the viewpoint of civil engineering, if you build this bridge today, what would your purpose for locating the bridge at that point be?
Coordinates of the Zeril Bridge: 37.915422 , 42.984053
