Ram Jhula Rishikesh
Two kilometres away Rishikesh stands the beautiful iron suspension bridge called Ram Jhula at Muni-Ki-Reti. This significant landmark of Rishikesh was built in 1986 by PWD and is slightly bigger than Lakshman Jhula regarding length. Ram Jhula connects Shivanad Ashram (towards the east bank) and Swargashram (towards the west bank). Previously it was a hanging jute ropeway, however, in 1980; a permanent iron suspension bridge was made by PWD, with the help of Shivananda Ashram. Often crowded with saints, sages and devotees, the Ram Jhula is also famed for attractions like Parmarth Niketan, Geeta Bhawan, Swargashram, Yog Niketan, Beatles Ashram, etc. Food lovers should visit the food courts located nearby the Ram Jhula.
