Lovely bridge accross the Ganges. What was ment for walking is now used by two wheelers !!!what a shame. People get knocked by these motorbikes. Now cows ,monkeys and monkeys on bikes compete with humans....a disaster awaiting to happen

The bridge is a very good attraction , the walk over Ganga river is very enjoyable . Please try to take a guide , who can show you many temples situated around this area , including Lakshman temple , Shiva temple and a lot of ashrams , and explain their significance .

The Ganges can be seen in its raw beauty from Lakshman jhula. Stroll in the lanes and by lanes and discover lovely cafes and bakery , junk jewellery and reasonably priced spas. It's amazing how it can be peaceful and hip and happening at the same time!

The bridge crosses over the emerald green Ganga River where you can watch children bathing, people doing their pujas (rituals) while placing flower offerings on the water, rafts drifting down the river rapids... And of course, be prepared to share the bridge with awesome monkeys, cows, motorcycles and lots of tourists :) All... More

Just spending a few minutes standing on the bridge, listening to the natural sounds of river flowing, wind, etc will get you energized!

If anyone wants to feel the magical prowess of Ganges its the place to be. Walking to the spot is best way to feel the fresh cold moisturised air. Ignore animals and heaps if garbage along the road leading to it

It is the main spot of Rishikesh. Generally crowded at all times, great view of river Ganga from here. Evening aartis ( prayers ) are must if you are at Lakshman Jhula
