Considered to be the most popular of all the attractions in Rishikesh, the Laxman Jhula is a suspension bridge built across two banks of the Ganga River. This majestic structure was constructed in the year 1939 and has become a landmark in Rishikesh since then. Strong winds cause this bridge to sway a bit and it even vibrates when vehicles pass over it. The legend behind the bridge is that Laxmana of the Ramayana had crossed over the Ganges using ropes from the very same spot where the Laxman Jhula stands today. The view atop this bridge is stunning and one is bound to pose for a few clicks here.

I went on to take a one day trip to Dhanuskodi, Tamilnadu off from Madurai. Take any train journey to Rameshwaram and that's where you cross a hell of a rail-bridge, the more than '100 years old' Pamban bridge which connects you to the Rameshwaram Island.I dare you feel the sea underneath your feet on a slow moving train on Pamban. Exotic!!!Plus you get a beautiful glimpse of the Pamban road bridge alongside.
