Lakshman Jhula, Rishikesh Overview

This suspended Iron bridge was built in 1939 and has been a major attraction among the tourists to Rishikesh. It is said that Lakshman crossed Ganga on jute ropes between the place where this bridge is built. The Ganges appears very panaromic from the bridge. One can enjoy the picturesque surroundings and the cool breeze from the River while standing on the bridge. If you feel like feeding the fish in the Ganges, take a boat and cross the river. The boat ride makes the bridge appear more gorgeous.


Close to Lakshman Juhla is the Ram Jhula- This suspended bridge was recently built between Shivanand Ashram and Swarg Ashram. It is similar to the Lakshman Jhula. Ram Jhula is also known as Shivanand Jhula.
