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

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.

We family and friends went to this place hiking all the way through green woods and the chorus of nature. It was a fine experience. Beatles came here for some yoga and meditation in the late 60s that is why this place is associated with them. You can enter this place by giving the guard a minimal fee of 100... More

If you're in the area you should definitely check this place out, it's worth the trip and the entry cost of 100 rupees. There's a few hours worth of exploring, picture taking and just being in the place with so much history there. Getting in can vary, being India, we visited twice with the first visit costing us 60 rupees... More

We had to walk quite a way to see this, but we had come so far to get to Rishikesh! It has been left to get quite run down which is a shame. There was someone at the gate who charged us 100 rupees each to go in, which we weren't sure was legitimate or not. The grounds were a... More

It's ok, it's a run down ruin of a building with graffiti in so,elf the rooms. I didn't see anything to show the Beetles were there. I wouldn't go again.

This place is truly full of magic - I still can´t believe they just let it empty. It´s almost a shame to see how this area falls apart. I love this little stone houses with small terraces in front, some with view over the Ganges and psychadelic artwork inside. And the Beatles Hall is beautiful with all the Graffiti! There... More
