Ram Jhula in Rishikesh

Ram Jhula is one among the two extremely popular hanging-bridges in Rishikesh. It is one of the important places of interest for those who visit Rishikesh. The bridge was put-up in year 1986 on the River Ganga. It is around 450 ft in height connecting the two famous ashrams, Swarg Ashram and Shivananda ashram. A long walk on the bridge provides attractive views of snow-capped peaks, holy river Ganga, several temples and ashrams. The suspension bridge is quite similar to that of Laxman Jhula, another hanging bridge.

Commonly referred as Shivananda Jhula, Ram Jhula has many other important ashrams in its proximity such as Gita Bhawan, Yog Niketan and Parmarth Niketan ashram. All the ashrams are known for their spirituality and simplicity. Devotees and travelers specially come here to meditate and achieve spiritual knowledge.
