The Swedish Royal Couple also visited the famous Ram Jhula Bridge in Rishikesh and Har ki Pauri, the most famous bathing ghat in Haridwar. Ram Jhula Bridge is one of the most famous landmarks in the city of Rishikesh.
An iron suspension bridge built over the River Ganga, it measures 450 feet and connects Sivananda Ashram to Swargashram. People visit in large numbers to enjoy the lovely views it offers.
Har Ki Pauri revered by all Hindus, as it’s where the River Ganga exits the mountains. The famous Ganga Aarti is also held here, as are the two biggest fairs of India, Ardh and Kumbh Mela. Besides visiting these famous tourist attractions in Haridwar, the Royal Couple also inaugurated a 14 million litres per day (MLD) Sewage Treatment Plant (STP).
