The iron bridge of Ajaristskali in Khelvachauri municipality is the only bridge in Adjara, which is built according to the analogy of the "Eiffel" bridge, a similar bridge is not found in the Ajarisskali valley, according to the metal, structurally bonded iron bridge is located on the bank of the Ajarisskali river, the transfer bridge connected two historical areas. At first, we had to assume that the bridge would be wooden. Due to the heavy rainfall that fell on the Adjara River, the wooden bridges could not last long and were often flooded, therefore it became necessary to build a new bridge. At the beginning of the 19th century, during the rule of the Russian Empire, an iron bridge was built by local engineers and Greek Kalatozes. The iron bridge is a single bonded construction that does not have supporting (sabjen) arches. The bridge is semicircular in shape accented with simple metal ornaments.
