The Stone Bridge (Turkish: Taşköprü) is a Roman bridge spanning the Seyhan River (the ancient Sarus river) in Adana, Turkey. It was built in Roman times and is today one of the symbols of Adana.
Its date of the construction is uncertain. It may be as early as the reign of Hadrian (117137) or as late as Justinian's time (527-565). The Adana museum is reported to harbour an inscription which refers to a certain Auxentius as bridge builder who may be identical with one Auxentius known to have flourishing around 384 AD in this profession; thus, the original fabric of the bridge may date back to the 4th century AD.

This is a very well proportioned composition with excellent light and colours. Interesting contrasts between the old and the much newer bridge.
