Lakshman Jhula, Rishikesh
Categories: Bridges, Tourist Spots
Walk across Lakshman Jhula to quickly get from one side of the Ganges River to the other. Before 1939, the only way to cross the river was by a bridge made of jute ropes. As floods happen on a regular basis here, a sturdier construction was needed to withstand the seasonal torrents. At one side of this suspension bridge, you can visit a temple filled with religious paintings and sculptures, while on the other you can explore a shrine known for elaborately carved icons of Hindu deities. The area around the bridge bustles with life, so do not expect any peace and quiet here.

View from laxman jhula is great as the 13 storey temple with mountain in the backdrop gives it a really beautiful and grand look. It is broader as compared to ram jhula.
but. really touristic,expensive,and not so authentic. the view is great,but,i prefer the authentic side of rishikesh.tapovan or ram jhula
crossing the Ganga river on foot, then try using this bridge. A walk across this bridge is beautiful and serene. view from here is amazing.
