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:This time we decided to walk during Evening to gaze the immense sparkled lightnings of LAXMAN JHULA. Mentioning the distance again, it is nearly 1.7kms from Hilltop Swiss resort, Tapovan. Unlike RAM JHULA you can only walk through this bridge. However, there are multiple parking areas nearby.Also, you can visit 13th floor LAXMAN MANDIR which is just located in the other end of bridge. I would definitely suggest you to visit in the evening time.
We reached to Rishikesh little late afternoon. Our hotel was at par of Laxman zula and to our surprise there is no decent transportation to easily reach the other side of Zula, which are basically foot bridges. There are ways but some long routes which Auto walas were not much interested to go. So along with luggage we had to walk a long distance to reach hotel. Walking on the bridge just above mighty Ganga and watching whole city view along the banks of mighty river makes you fall in love with the place immediately.
