Lakshman Jhula, a renowned iron suspension bridge connecting the villages of Tapovan in Tehri Garhwal district and Jonk in Pauri Garhwal district, spans the Ganges river in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand.

This 450-foot-long bridge, built in 1939, serves as a significant landmark, remaining accessible to the public from 5 AM to 10 PM. Legend has it that Lord Lakshmana traversed the Ganges on jute ropes, hence its name. It offers breathtaking vistas of the city and the Ganges River.
