must see place in rishikesh. Ithere is such a great and powerfull energy where you go there, you can visit this old ashram (day or night time), stay for doing yoga or meditation, alone or with friends. It is a weird and magic experience.

I'm not even a Beatles fan but going there was amazing. Maybe it's just because I'm slightly obsessed with abandoned buildings but the atmosphere was everything I'd want it to be. I love that you have to bribe the guards 50 rupee to get in and that it's actually illegal that you're there at all. I love the decrepit orb... More

Walking into this deserted Ashram, you could feel the energy and buzz of what was once here. The meditation huts, the yoga hall, the gardens... there is peacefulness here, there is heart here, and there is much creativity here. It is sad to think that it is now closed. I hope that someone does re-open this wonderful ashram so we... More

This is the ashram where the Beatles studied with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for about 2 months in the late 60s. This was Maharishi's main teaching ashram until summer of 1970. It's a wonderful place, and the Beatles were there, but it is not the Beatles ashram.

A truly gorgeous ruin but be ninja-like or you may be forced to "donate" to the local police (if you get my drift). Be careful, as leopards and elephants have been spotted on the grounds recently.

A perfect place for a gentle hike in a forest, feel the vibes of beatles, their work and the love of fans. The place is also a reminder of fall of the yogi who made it and how he lost favours with then politician. Entry is not allowed, but the watchman can be persuaded with a little "bakshish"

There is nothing great or interesting about this ruin. It is old, not so well maintained and seems ready to collapse. The only thing is its name and that’s all. There are a few pictures inside and that is the only thing that even lends a bit of life to this otherwise boring place. It is worth a miss.
