Lakshman Jhula bridge is the older of two hanging bridges that Rishikesh has. It has been a major attraction among the tourists to Rishikesh. The suspension iron bridge Lakshman Jhula was build in 1929 and it has 450 feet long. This is where Rama's brother Lakshman is said to have crossed the river on a jute rope. One can enjoy the spectacular surroundings and the cool breeze from the river while standing on the bridge.
