Ram jhula in Rishikesh

 Ram Jhula in Rishikesh  is an iron suspension bridge situated at Muni Ki Reti in Tehri Garhwal disctrict in Indian state of Uttarakhand. Built in the year 1986, over river Ganges to cross the river and is a landmark of Rishikesh.
Ram jhula is located 3 kilometres north of Rishikesh at Muni Ki Reti. There are some of the Hindu ashrams and religious centers like "Gita Bhawan", and "Swargashram" located here.It is also a connecting bridge between Swargashram, Gita Bhawan and other temples with Sivananda Ashram. Though similar in design, this bridge is bigger than Lakshman Jhula. This bridge constructed with the span of 750 feet. Cars and tuk tuks are not allowed to cross the Jhulas, though motorcycles, tourists, monkeys and cows often bring pedestrian traffic to a standstill. At any given time, hundreds of people are pushing their way across; and the bridges sway accordingly.
On one occasion, the crowds and high winds coming off the Himilayas made the Ram Jhula bounce up and down in the air. In monsoon the view of Ram Jhula and the mountains is cover with the white clouds and you see the nature beauty of the Rishikesh.
After 3 days of raining, Now the weather of early Morning at the Ram Jhula..
