Ram Jhula is one of the two most popular hanging-bridges built in Rishikesh. It is a great place of interest for the pilgrims who visit Rishikesh. The bridge- Ram Jhula was built after the construction of Laxman Jhula in 1986. Both bridges lie on the River Ganga and are similar in design but the Ram Jhula is bigger than the Laxman Jhula.
It is approximately 450 ft in length and connects two ashrams with each other- Swarg Ashram and Shivananda ashram. While walking on the bridge, one can have attractive views of snow-covered peaks, ancient temples, ashrams and the vast Ganga River.
On both the sides of the Ram Jhula, there are many ashrams and temples. There are markets too, where you can buy idols of gods and goddess, books (on religious and spiritual topics), key rings and other stuff. The place is highly picturesque; so, don’t forget to capture it in your cameras. The stalls and shops near Ram Jhula are also famous for enjoying local sweets.
