Lakshman Jhula in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand

Listen to the wild waters of the River Ganges and look on as small motor boats and rafts pass underneath you on Lakshman Jhula. Visit a grand temple at one end of the bridge and purchase handmade artwork and jewelry from markets on both sides.
Lakshman Jhula is built in 1939, this suspension bridge measures 450 feet (137 meters) in length and stands 70 feet (21 meters) above the river. The local people will tell you that its name comes from Lakshmana, the younger brother of Lord Sri Rama who crossed here when the bridge was made from jute thread.
