The popular hanging bridge across the holy river Ganga, Lakshman Jhula is a known landmark in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand. This 450 ft long Jhula is built at a height of 70 ft from the river and is about 3 kms away from the main town of Rishikesh.
Interestingly this bridge has a history attached to it. As per the Hindu mythology, Lakshman, the younger brother of Lord Sri Rama, crossed the holy river Ganga at the same site where the bridge stands today. At that time this bridge was made up of jute. The bridge came to be known as the Lakshman Jhula after this incident. In 1939 the jute bridge was replaced with a new iron bridge that was built along the same path.
