What a wonderful setting, a footbridge over the holy Ganga with views of ancient temples all around. The lack of motor transport brings to the visitor a slowed awareness of the time, giving a natural opportunity to imbibe the deep spiritual sense of this place. I return, and return, and will return again. Ann G.

Went after almost 20 yrs with a lot of sweet childhood memories but was disappointed with the traffic jams on the road ,dirty crowded lanes and polythene bags n fish food on the jhoola itself and the stench on the other side. We should be ashamed of our self this is how we keep our holy places and the civic... More

After parking your vehicle or getting down from the auto/tuktuk, walk till you come to the big statue of Ram. From here, there are 2 ways to Laxman Jhula - one towards the right, one towards the left. The one on the left is much shorter but involves getting down steep stairs, the one on the right involves a gently... More

the lakshman jhula is a suspended bridge connecting the eastern bank to the western bank of ganga at rishikesh. The view from the bridge which has a very minor palpable sway is breathtaking however as 2 wheelers(bikes and scooters) are allowed to cross over this bridge it has become a nuisance. the athorities should look into this and leave it...

Heard a lot about this Cantilever bridge first made to cross Ganges, some time in 1929, as a Jeep Bridge. Now only for pedestrians. Very dirty approach, unclean surrounding, much to be required to be done by the corporation to keep its name which it deserves. Around two Km from Ram Jhula. Not worth visiting in its present condition.

Liked this jhula more because my grandfather had built it way back in 1939 (Find the name Jagdish Prasad, Asst. Engr. on the foundation stone). However, the jhula remains too crowded with tourists and locals. Most irritating are two wheelers plying on it.
