It's a cable strewn hanging pedestrian bridge (used by two wheelers too) across the Ganga river. Commissioned in the 1930s, Lakshman Jhula is built where it's said Lakshman performed penance for his killings in the Lanka... More

It's an average walking bridge that gets very crowded with people, mopeds and cows. It is the best way to cross the river but nothing special.

It was awsome experience at Lakshman Jhula . I felt the feeling of Jhula while moving on. All the temples nearby were very peaceful. One must visit atleast once.

This is one of the famous and holy bridge. This bridge is constructed over all river Ganga. You can see beautiful and big fishes from this bridge. View from bridge is too good.
