    Since the closure of Laxman Jhulla to vehicular traffic, this iconic suspension bridge has become a bustling thoroughfare for both pedestrians and bikers. At any given time, the bridge is adorned with a lively crowd, creating an energetic atmosphere. The view from the bridge, overlooking the majestic Ganga River and the captivating sight of rafting activities below, adds to its charm.

    Approaching the Ramjhulla parking side, visitors are treated to a picturesque view of the Ganges. Toward the end of the bridge, on the left-hand side, lies Goa Beach, offering a serene escape along the riverbank. Crossing the Jhulla and continuing on the left, one encounters the road leading to Laxman Jhulla. On the right side, the area is adorned with renowned tourist destinations, predominantly ashrams such as Parmarth Niketan, Swargashram, and Sivanand. Notably, the famous Chotiwala restaurants are also situated on this side, providing a taste of local cuisine.

    The allure of Ram Jhulla is further heightened during the evening when the entire structure is illuminated, casting a warm glow across the surroundings. This nightly transformation enhances the bridge's beauty, creating a captivating ambiance that draws visitors to witness the enchanting play of lights against the backdrop of the flowing Ganga River. Ram Jhulla stands not only as a functional crossing but also as a symbol of vibrancy and charm in the heart of Rishikesh.

    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..

    when I visited this, Laxman Jhula was under construction so drivers would drop you here and you cross Janki Jhula, explore all the ashrams, and come back vis Ram Jhula.

    Janki Setu, named after Goddess Sita (Janki) was a modern marvel that blended harmoniously with its divine setting, The bridge featured intricate paintings and statues that showcased the rich Hindu mythology.

    The Janaki Setu under construction in the Ganges between Kailash Gate and Ved Niketan will be the first three-lane bridge in Uttarakhand. A foot lane will be built on both sides of this bridge, with one lane coming in and the other going. Whereas, in the middle part there will be space for two-wheelers and carts. However, this bridge is being built with a load capacity suitable for four-wheelers.

    This bridge is built on the Ganges River and has a length of 274 meters.
