Positioned in Muni Ki Reti, Ram Jhula is one of the most popular attractions of Rishikesh. This bridge was constructed later than the Lakshman Jhula, in the year 1980. Both these bridges are quite similar in design and steel construction. Ram Jhula is placed a few miles downstream from Laxman Jhula and links Swarg Ashram on the western bank of River Ganga to the Sivananda Ashram on the eastern one.
As you walk on the bridge, river Ganga gushes below with full force and you are surrounded by beautiful Himalayas. Let the cool breeze brush past your face. The bride is around 6 km northwards of the holy town. The bridge is also slightly bigger in length than Laxman Jhula. The total length of the bridge is 450 feet.
On both the sides of the bridge are various temples as well as Ashram. There are markets too, selling incense books, books on religious and spiritual topics, idols of gods and goddess, key rings and other knick-knacks. Do not forget to capture the beautiful scenery in your cameras. Savoring local sweet delicacies is also a must.
