We loved the Beatles Ashram. It was beautiful, so much exploring to do there. Make sure you give a few hours spare for being here. Nature at its finest, little surprises of artwork around the place and a big undercover area full of Beatles paintings and quotes etc. A truly spectacular place and worth the money to get in there!

The ashram borders the Rajaji National Park and is now abandoned. The jungle is slowly reclaiming its rightful ownership of the abandoned premises. We spent more than an hour exploring the entire ashram. We paid INR 300 for 2 people. We were all alone when we explored the place, which made it a very tranquil walk. You start by seeing... More

The silence takes you on a different trip all together Aside of some outstanding works of art around, the place is paradise for those who wish to just wish to gulp in some fresh air. Must must must visit!

It was nice to walk around this site and imagine what it was like back in the day. It is not operating as an ashram but more as a tourist attraction however, we only saw one couple on our visit. The Beatles 'cave' (stone hut) is marked as such. The entry ticket is steep.

At 600 rupee pp, you have to be a real Beatles fan and understand the story behind the Beatles visit with the Maharashi. It was well worth it in our eyes, overgrown and mysterious only added to the magic and spiritual experience. Hunt deep for deep dark hidden passages for some real exploring. We were the only ones there, take... More

I visited the Beatles Ashram in October 2015 and it was incredible. This is where the Beatles lived and studied under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi while in Rishikesh. No one seemed to really know about it as it is somewhat off the beaten path. I asked a few locals who pointed me in the rough direction but there were no signs... More

I loved every part of the Beatles Ashram. The place is left in ruins and the jungle is slowly swallowing it and claiming it back, a truely beautiful sight, Some say it is a shame that the place is not put to good use anymore however I think the beauty of the place is witnessing the deteriorating state. Beautiful artworks... More

It's a shame its abandoned even so its really nice to see the stuvas for meditation and just to feel the energy of the place. Walk through all roads and enter some buildings so you will see there were going on differents activities...
