A great place to hang out. I filmed a music video here and really really loved it. Met nice people and visited many times. Unfortunately the opportunistic individuals that open the gate steal (bakshish) from foreigners and charge an entrance fee even though they will not give you a receipt to prove that it is an entrance fee and claim...

A hundred rupee entry baksheesh will get you through the gate of this now largely derelict ashram with ghosts of the sixties lingering in the strangest of meditation cells and domes. It must have been remarkable in its day with hundreds of people staying there but now it looks sad and neglected. A must see for fans of the Beatles... More

I'm so glad I came here. It was like a trip back in time. I wouldn't have been surprised to run into John Lennon. I actually like that it's not been turned into an institutional government run tourist trap museum. One can take a peaceful ramble through the abandoned buildings without being hustled by tour guides.

A mecca for die hard Beatle fans. This is where the Fab Four stayed, with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the 1960s. On the banks of the ganga, near Ram Jhula it is where they learnt the Sitar & Transcendental Meditation. The authorities plan to convert it into a public museum. Work not yet started.

A quirky overgrown and under-cared for icon that's difficult to find. Bad taste graffiti and no maintenance ruin what could be an immense tourist attraction. There should be more info about the various buildings. Guard at the entrance says the place is not accessible. Then asks for INR100. I got in for INR50. It could be a icon, but it's... More

It was very nice getting to know the place where the Beatles spend some time in the sixties. Really exciting! the place has a quirky atmosphere and worth a visit, even if it is not so easy to find!

First off, beware of the men at the front gate, they are amazingly creepy and will try to rip you off with prices from 50rs to 150rs. They are not employed by the government to watch the place and are just taking your money and laughing, the place is actually owned by the forestry department. If you want to get... More

You should do this if you are a fan of the following: (1) Beatles (2) History (3) Ashrams (4) Humanity (5) Solitude (6) Meditation...actually the list is endless. You should do it because you never know when this place might be strictly off limits for public. No other place has affected me so much in years. I spent less than... More

I was surprised about how HUGE the complex is. It is superb, many graffitis, wild nature claiming back its ground, the old buildings... bring your camera and a flashlight, you won't regret.
