“nice swinging bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

i first visited this place in 1996!! after that I have been quite frequent. I especially love crossing the bridge on foot so that I can feel the sway. also the ganga provides a great pastime!!

Hanging bridge over Ganga without any pillers in between. You get a filling of swing while on walking.

“Shaking laxman jula”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We were in rishikesh on 18 th June 2013,when whole of our tv channels were focussing the flooded shiva ,near laxman jula.Even on that day so many people were riding motorcycles on that bridge,which made us so scary!,,,
Really the bridge is a wonder by its construction ,taking into account of fast gushing ganga beneath that.
It was really worth to visit this attraction when anybody visits rishikesh.
On the way to jula was fully crowded &full of shops selling traditional articles.

“Holy Bridge for crossing Ganga River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

LIke Ram Jhula this is also holy bridge to cross Ganga river by pedestrians.

This gives marvelous view of River, Ghats across both sides and of hills. While crossing just stop in the center for a minute or two & one can easily feel vibrations in bridge giving you a thrilling experience. Kids / children should be guarded by parents / elders while crossing over.

Over all a good experience.
