Ram Jhula is a suspended metallic bridge that crosses the river Ganges from west to east. It is situated three kilometers northeast of the city of Rishikesh in the Indian state of Uttarakhand.
This bridge connects the area of Sivananda Nagar with the area of Swargashram, with Parmarth Niketan, Beatles and other ashrams. There are many Hindu temples and religious centers on both sides of the bridge. Built in 1986, the bridge is one of the most famous sights of Rishikesh.
This bridge is 230 meters long, which is smaller than Janki Setu bridge located nearby, and almost twice as large as Lakshman Jhula, similar in design, located 2 km up the Ganges.
Rishikesh is ancient Indian city in the footprints of Himalayas, now widely knows as Yoga Capital of the World
