Quru River (Quru Chay)
Country Iran
State East Azerbaijan

The Quri River or Quru Chay or Quri Chay (Azerbaijani and Persian: قوری‌چای‎) is a river in East Azerbaijan province of Iran. It arises in the mountains east of Tabriz and joins the Aji Chay just northeast of central Tabriz. The river divides Tabriz into northern and southern parts which are connected to each other by several bridges.[1] The two Ghari Bridges, beside each other, are the most famous and historic of the bridges over the river. The Sangi Bridge is also of historic interest.

There is also a highway on both sides of the river, called the Chay Kenar, which passes through the middle of city, connecting the eastern and western parts of the city without any traffic lights.

The name "Quri Chay" means "dry river", and at the end of the Twentieth Century the water, when present, was polluted and undrinkable.[2]
