RISHIKESH
The Fount of Arsha Samskriti 

LAKSHMAN JHULA

It is about 5 kilometers away from the bus stand. Lakshman, the loyal young brother of Sri Rama, the 7th incarnation performed tapas here. To perpetuate his memory, a temple was built long ago. It is a beautiful spot commanding an excellent view of Himalayan mountains on three sides. The beautiful image of Lakshman decorated in gorgeous dress and floral wreaths bends the heads of visitors and recalls to minds Lakshman's great fraternal piety shown during Rama's exile that lasted for fourteen years. It is on the right bank of Ganga, and is connecting the left bank by the suspension bridge, the walking over which is an experience worth cherishing. On the other side of this holy shrine there are many temples dedicated to several deities, and some of them are built inside asrams and guesthouses. They are efficiently managed by charitable institutions. They cater to the comfort of visiting pilgrims. These institutions and temples starting from here extend to the outskirts of town about 5 kilometers away.
