It is not the original piece of stone bridge, but an imitated one; Water in the river is not nice; it's good to have a see only together with Bailin temple, for they are close to each other in Zhaoxian county;

I'm giving this five stars as it relates to Shijiazhuang. Obviously, the Zhaozhou Bridge doesn't compare to say, the Great Wall.

Interesting place to visit and well worth a trip if you're staying in Shijiazhuang. We went early to beat the crowds as we were told it is a popular destination to visit.

We visited back in 2007, and made the side trip to see this Bridge, made fairly famous due to its extremely difficult engineering. It was a pleasant drive, and we enjoyed the vendors and people who tended the place. I would return.

Very enjoyable, quiet and peaceful. A nice visit. The bridge is quite simple, but the area walking up to it, along with the sculptures are really beautiful. If going during the summer (like I did) be sure to have sunscreen or an umbrella to block...More
