Lovèd it... Could spend all day watching people crossing the bridge... On bikes, scooters, foot, pushing vendor carts, children feeding fish, beggars, not to mention the dogs, monkeys and cows ....revisited each day... Also enjoyed the fact that still the Indian domestic Visitors outnumber the westerners! Went to Ayurvedic consultation and massage at Dr Kumars clinic between the two bridges...... More

Its a place you would definitely want to visit for its reputation and heritage value attached to it. Hotel where i stayed in was very near to Laxman Jhula and it only took 10 mins to walk to this place. When you are at the middle of the Jhula and look downwards at the River Ganga, the kind of feel... More

Not sure what he had done to the items. Tourists were calling for help but no one was coming forth. There were no police patrols around either. We left... More

I visited this place after about 15 years and nothing much has changed. The bridge has historic significance and is a major tourist and religious site. You will find people, monkeys, cows, bikes etc everything going in all directions on the bridge

Beside the crowd who could easily drive you crazy, you have a beautiful view and a lot of little shops for souvenirs near the bridge as well as some cafes.

It is a beautiful bridge over the ganges and the view is spectacular. Monkeys on the bridge are a little scary but they are very friendly and do not harm. Just very far from where we were staying. Should have stayed at a luxury hotel near laxman Jhula.

Not trying to be bad, despite being an engineering masterpiece, this place is not really worth all the hype it got.
