It was a bit hard to find and no one was up there. It would be great if there were some signs to indicate something, but it's all completely abandoned and grown over with greenery. A great place for photos and to observe the graffiti art. How to get there : from the Ram Jhula, go up the hill towards... More

Visiting the Beatles ashram was one of my "must-do"s of Rishikesh. The ashram is now in ruins, but you can walk up on the rooftops and see the views. I recommend listening to the White Album while you're walking there. Then you can imagine what the ashram was like in 1968.

The ashram has now been turned into a nature preserve by the Forest Service. The paths have been cleared, the gardens are being replanted and the fountains are being restored. Future plans include renovating Maharishi's house as a memorial to his time there with The Beatles and opening up the meditation caves for everyone's use. The atmosphere is sublimely peaceful...

Although known as the Beatles' Ashram, actually a place of meditation established by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the TM movement. This place, the people, who were there and the drama that played out were the genesis for the White Album. Historical significance for the consciousness movement cannot be downplayed. Quiet, serene place with a great view of the... More

The jungle is re-conquering the place. The former beauty and magic is still palpable. The architecture is still stunning. You feel like an archeologist. Wonder what it was like when hundreds of beautiful people were milling aroung in the compound with the Beatles and their Guru. Take one of the Sadhus you meet on the way as a guide. About... More

Would be a nice spot for a picnic... Art hall and uplifting graffiti on Many walls in dorms, domes and buildings. Grab some charcoal and write something inspiring
