Walk across Lakshman Jhula Bridge to quickly get from one side of the Ganges River to the other. Before 1939, the only way to cross the river was by a bridge made of jute ropes. As floods happen on a regular basis here, a sturdier construction was needed to withstand the seasonal torrents. At one side of this suspension bridge, you can visit a temple filled with religious paintings and sculptures, while on the other you can explore a shrine known for elaborately carved icons of Hindu deities. The area around the bridge bustles with life, so do not expect any peace and quiet here.

A calm and soothing place.. The whole surroundings are filled with the aroma of fresh and peaceful air. It is the perfect place for the shoppers too.. The Laxman Jhula bridge and the nearby shops are my personal favourites during my Rishikesh trip. Keep enjoying this awesome ambience..
What a view. Panoramic view. Lush green mountain around you and mighty Ganges beneath. Awesome feeling. When you walk on it the road is vibrates gives you chill to spine. But definitely a great sense of accomplishment carries along and you feel great.
