One of the most beautiful places in India, It is one of the points where the Ganges is at its cleanest, the colour of the water is indescribable, The area itself gives you a feeling of calm and relaxation due to it surrounding temples, yoga studios, etc, A must see if you are near by,

Laxman Jhula epitomized the legacy of Indian Culture.... Bridge is overcrowded with over enthusiast tourists and localites on their two wheelers... Kinda over packed with people... But that's the beauty of this place... This suspension bridge looks and feels most beautiful when u r in halfway on it and it starts swaying in wind... U feel the divine connection even... More

It is a must place to visit at Rishikesh. A hanging bridge which swings when you walk over it, may be frightening for few very weak hearted

The lead in to the jhula was filled with dirt. We personally disliked the bike riders on the jhula. It was a bad experience overall but since it is a holy place it needs more care and cleanliness

This is the main attraction of Rishikesh and plunged by thousands of tourists at any time. Below careful about two wheelers passing on the bridge and add to this moneys sitting everywhere on the bridge.Enjoy the beautiful river flowing underneath the bridge and while crossing, feel the vibration.

Just a bridge over the ganges, lots of people, gangs of monkeys who snatch anything that looks like food, a couple of lazy cows that just sit there come what may. Just what one might expect in a religious town like Rishikesh.

The view of the Ganges from the bridge is amazing and the walk on the bridge is altogether a different experience!!!

Laxman jhula as seen from atop is a busy crossing to go across the mighty Ganges. Beware of the monkeys ready to snatch any food if not carefully. There are some temples and nice eating joints across.
