About Visit Lakshman Jhula

Lakshman Jhula is among the places you must surely visit while in Rishikesh. It is suspended over the Ganga river and is one of the most prominent landmarks of the city. The historical context of this place has it that Lord Lakshman crossed the Ganga river through a jute rope exactly where the bridge is now built. Hindus have religious sentiments associated with this Lakshman Jhula. The bridge was built almost a century ago in the year 1929 and still stands strong. Take a stroll over the bridge and observe the daily life around it. The bridge spans 450 feet and you can comfortably move from one end to another. You may also find small vendors near the bridge selling religious objects or jewels and accessories.

Pro Tip: Avoid going on weekends and holidays as it is crowded
