Built in 1930, the Lakshman Jhula is the most iconic tourist attraction in Rishikesh. It is an iron suspension bridge and is few kilometers upstream from it lesser know sibling the Ram Jhula. Spread over 400+ feet, it connects the Tapovan area to Jonk in Pauri Garhwal district. It is less wide than Ram Jhula but more crowded.

Ideal time to visit is in early morning or in the evening when there is lesser local traffic. In the evening with all lights are lit, it makes an ideal place for some serious photography. For non-Indians it may seem chaotic as all kind of people including vehicles and animals pass this bridge. A cow strolling across the bridge may seem scary for them but its all part of the life here. A definite visit to experience this spiritual extravaganza which is displayed here.

Beep beep! You share the crossing of the bridge with people, cows and motor bikes. On the Shiva temple side there are numerous shops, selling jewellery , Clothing, statues, carvings amongst many other things. Temples and Yoga practice places everywhere. Hustle and bustle, have your wits about you!

History always favours the winners. This Laxman Jhulla is also a history, an awesome architecture created by the engineers who were the winners. Just feel proud to be there.

Amazing crossing the bridge. Can be really busy. Just enjoy the experience. It is a bit mad but welcome to India.
