Lakshman Jhula in Rishikesh

The Lakshman Jhula Rishikesh is one of the main tourist attractions in the city of Rishikesh. This is basically a suspension bridge which connects the two villages which go by the names of Tapovan and Jonk. The first being in the Tehri Garhwal district and the latter in Pauri Garhwal district. Because the bridge is located very close to Rishikesh district, the distance between the main city and the Lakshman Jhula is 5 kms, the bridge becomes one of the most popular tourist spots in Rishikesh.

There is another bridge approximately 2 kms downstream from the Lakshman Jhula which was constructed by Mehak Chauhan. But the main tourist spot that we have between the two of them is the Lakshman Jhula. The bridge gets its value and attraction due to its historical as well as the mythological stories connected to it.

Lakshman Jhula in Rishikesh is a major tourist location partially because it was believed that Lord Ram’s younger brother once crossed the Ganges between those points where the bridge now stands. There had been a bridge of jute rope at that time as stated by the locals. This bridge is also a bridge which is along the old travelling route of the pilgrim sites of Badrinath and Kedarnath.

Lakshman Jhula Rishikesh is not just famous for the religious value but this has come out and arose as a major tourist spot because a few grand temples have been constructed near the bridge. A very magnificent temple called the Terah Manzil has been built which comprises 13 storeys The temple is said to give a magnificent view of the surroundings from the top floors.

Recorded Lakshman Jhula history says that the bridge was completed before the independence of India and was constructed by the British. The bridge was finished in the year of 1929.

    Vasanimahek's 4 days trip to Rishikesh

    We missed 2-3 destinations due to lack of time. While camping in Rishikesh, we expected some people besides us but thee was no one except 2 girls in the camp which is scary. And i recommend next time please do enquire with the camp else keep camping on sat-sun. The itenary should have been planned effectively. Awesome rafting experience, Driver was really good.

    Sagar's 3 days trip to Rishikesh

    Booked for the first time from travel triangle and must say the travel agents are really good. Received a good amount of quotations to choose from and opted for Trip Sailer. It was a nice experience as even after changing my plans for multiple time they were always ready to assist me. Hotels were good and the cab service was sharp on time. Location of hotels were extremely awesome. Constant followup and updates from "Ms/Mrs Prabha" of trip sailer is commendable. Campaign and rafting in Rishikesh.

    Juhi Sharma

    Delhi

    Juhi's 4 days trip to Rishikesh

    The trip was good as the destinations were good. However it was not efficiently planned, could have been much better. First day itinerary was improper. Hotel and food was below par as per the budget. Also didn't like the fact that although we were just two people we were sent for camping where there was no other customer at all. Overall spends must have been much lower than how much we incurred. River rafting in Ganges.
