It's around 30 mins to 1 hr journey from Haridwar through the Tiger reserve on opposite side of the bridge( shiv temple). Charges of 50/- for tiger reserve and 40/- for local panchayat if you are travelling by own car. Else you can get bus/ auto to Rishikesh and then Trax vehicle upto bridge. The exsisting old bridge has been blocked for last 1.5 years and construction of new bridge is going on as old bridge ropes has become weak and stability issue. So you can only watch from far just the bridge as nothing much to see else. There is river rafting, speed boat available near bridge area which one can enjoy.

The most scenic part of Rishikesh. It is beautiful on both sides of the river. The bridge itself is presently closed, but you can get to the other side using boat. The waiting time can be quite long, or you can top up more for private crossing.

It's good to visit with your family, it's a religious site. It looks beautiful in the evening with the lightings on. There's temples across the bridge and a heritage market before crossing which is a must visit. An aashram inside the temple is a good place to stay to get closer to the culture and locality.

The Jhula was shut and has been shut for past two years.
It is quite serendipitous that I arrived in Rishikesh on Sivarathri. The whole place was agog with excitement, spilling people out of all kinds of abodes, vying for space with sturdy scary bulls, graceful cows, opportunistic dogs and monkeys on brightly lit streets by coloured lights and voices competing with blaring amplifiers spewing all kinds of noises. I saw Siva and Parvathi dancing to Popular Hindi film songs like ‘Kajra muhabbath waala’ and dialoguing like the people on the streets -right in the temple precincts choked with piety.

By the jhula, under its majestic presence, people swung layered brass fire-lamps in obeisance to deities of their own faith chanting holy slogans praying for a better life than the existence that they barely endured. Scents, smells and fragrances filled the air with a kaleidoscope of memories locked up in my cerebral crevices. I had been here fifty years ago with my deceased parents, clinging on to them for fear of getting lost.

There were people with anxieties, sadness, peace, happiness, contentment and emptiness in their hearts all amalgamated into one single pulsating throbbing existential entity called humanity..

And majestically Ganga flowed totally detached in the midst of all the Gunga Din,like a mystic Queen donning an aquamarine blue hue- clean and pure, cleansing and purifying the entire environment with a quietude that reflected centuries of meditative equanimity and forgiveness.

It was breathtaking and yet demanding my full attention to every moment to take in everything and nothings in between..
