Nice place

Good place to live and meditate. Sit at the banks of holy Ganges and discover yourself. One can many ashrams in and around rishikesh.

The area around the Laxman Jhula is calmer than the craziness down by the Ram Jhula, they are both amazing bridges spanning the beautiful River Ganges but I think I prefer the view from here.

You must visit the place and cross the river to feel the charm of Laxman Jhula and a spectacular river Ganga. Amazing feeling.

If you want to see a clean Ganga river here is the place. Green waters clean enough so you can swim and be blessed. Beautiful views and loads of guest houses and restaurants and yoga classes and whatever more you need.

Well, to see it's just a normal bridge. No special or innovative technology involved. But there is something which hold you onto that. You just never wish to leave the space ( esp at evening hours)

One of the two bridges across river Ganga is revered by Hindus across India. It is named after Laxman brother of Lord Ram. The other one is Ram jhoola. This swinging bridge is fun to walk across to get the the view of river Ganga.

What can i say about this place. Jhula means swing. And a walk on this bridge is an experience it self. Crowded though but worth it. The view of Ganges is just too good.

You really have to cross the Ganges at least once while in Rishikesh, and there's no better way to do it than by way of the Laxman Jhula suspension bridge. It's more or less a footbridge with the occasional scooter and motorbikes, and has its own mad bustling charm, including a subtle but noticeable under-sway. The bridge links Tapovan with... More

We regretted why we did not choose a hotel closer to this location as it is a must visit in Rishikesh. The calmness of the river and the breeze is just so refreshing. Lot of eateries and temples to visit around the area.
