Situated at Muni Ki Reti in Rishikesh, Uttrakhand, Ram Jhula is a significant landmark. Built in 1986 over river Ganges, this is an iron suspension bridge, used mainly to cross the river. There are Hindu ashrams and temples around the bridge, worth to visit. Recommended for families, groups and tourists across the globe.
