The bridge is located in the southern part of Sarakhs etrap (district), where Tejen River meets the plain land. In 1826 the historian Agekhi reported the following about Pulkhatyn: «Pulkhatyn is a strong bridge put over Tejen River, and made of stone and also coated with bricks. It has length of 72 feet (1 feet = 71 cm) and 3 feet of width, and to allow water to flow. It has 5 large and 5 small arches». In 1889, when this territory became a part of Russia, the bridge Pulkhatyn was completely renovated. There were left 5 large arches which strengthened by masonry pier as the bridge was built over the part of river with a fairly strong water flow. At present, the length of the bridge is 60 m, width of 3 m, and a height of 10 m. In the Middle Ages the bridge served as the only suitable crossing point on the Silk Road᾽s section Merv – Nishapur. Its viability Pulkhatyn Bridge proved in 1976, when the river flow reached 1,600 cubic meters of water per a second during a severe flood.
