Arch/Tagh-e Shah Abbasi, also known as Shah Abbasi Dam, is probably the
most spectacular site of Khavre village; the hand-made brick body & stone
crown of which has been placed amongst the east mounts of Tabas.
This Arch with 60 meters height, not only bears the name of the oldest
& biggest Arch Dams of the world, but also over 550 years has been known as
the world highest one.
Thanks to its 1 meter wide of the crown, Shah Abbasi dam also bears
another name; of which none of the world's
have been acclaimed yet: the world thinnest dam.
To vist this structure, you need to travel to 700-year old village of
Kharve, 27 km from Tabas, right somewhere on the neighboring of Morteza Ali
