Just 2 km ahead downstream, at Muni-ki-Reti, is another suspension bridge built later connecting the areas of Shivanand Ashram on the east bank and Swargashram on the west.Both of these are pedestrian-only bridges and are used to cross the River Ganga that flows through the town of Rishikesh and divides it into two parts. Both of them also stay true to their name 'Jhula', which means 'swing' in hindi, and sway slightly when you walk on it.Ram Jhula is an iron suspension bridge situated at Muni Ki Reti in Tehri Garhwal disctrict in Indian state of Uttarakhand. Built in the year 1986, over river Ganges to cross the river and is a landmark of Rishikesh.
Ram jhula is located 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) north of Rishikesh at Muni Ki Reti. There are some of the Hindu ashrams and religious centers like "Gita Bhawan", and "Swargashram" located here
It is also a connecting bridge between Swargashram, Gita Bhawan and other temples with Sivananda Ashram. Though similar in design, this bridge is bigger than Lakshman Jhula. Built in the 1980s, the Ram Jhula crosses the Ganges River three kilometers (1.9 miles) downstream from the Laxshman Jhula in Rishiksh, India. While these two bridges are nearly identical in appearance and design, the Ram Jhula actually is a bit bigger. Located in Muni Ki Reti, the Ram Juhla is surrounded by bustling markets and temples on either side.
