Makhuntseti Bridge - a stone-arched,vaulted bridge on the river Adjaristskali, on the territory of the village Makhuntseti, in the highlands of Adjara.

Makhuntseti Bridge is located 54 meters away from the central road of Batumi-Khulo. The bridge is large and relies on natural rock piers. For its construction, stone of volcanic origin on a mortar was used. The bridge was completely reconstructed in 2008.

The height of the arch is 6 meters above the water level. The width of the arch is 0.70 m in the main beam and 1.60 m in the heel. Natural stone with different heights is used as the piers. The rock In some parts is built of stones.

The Mukhantseti bridge does not have hollows. Because of the size of mali, it would be necessary to build scaffolding here. This circumstance makes you think that during the construction of the bridge there should have been temporary piles in the river, on which the scaffolding was standing.
