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.
