Lakshman Jhula

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.

Laxman Jhula gives you perfect environment to click photographs of beautiful Ganga river and mountains. You will also find some street food options & tea stall as well.After clicking photographs and wandering both the sides i decided to go towards Ram Jhula.Distance between Ram Jhula and Laxman Jhula is approx 10KM. I decided to go by walking rather than taking any auto or rickshaw. I also recommend everyone to go on foot. It is actually a fun and worth-having experience.Weather was pleasant and so much greenery was making it like heaven. As it was approx 6:30 - 7 AM of morning so there was no rush on the road and cool breeze were making it outstanding.There ware many small vendors on the road who were selling Rudraksh Malas and other gems. Some were selling juice, street food and fruits.On the lanes towards Ram Jhula I had a fruit named 'Ram Phal' which i would suggest everyone to try. It is considered as one of the local fruit of Rishikesh.It is said that Lord Ram had eaten that fruit after killing Ravan that is why the fruit is named as "Ram Phal"

After this we went on to the Laxman jhula. Laxman jhula is entirely constructed as an suspension bridge supported by highly tensile steel cables, same as Ram jhula. Laxman jhula is situated at walking distance of 30-35 minutes from Ram jhula, through market streets.
