Also known as Swath Ashram or Beatles Ashram, this is where the Beatles landed in 1984. Loads of graffiti to be explored in the green. It is under the care of the Rajaji National Park and an entrance fee is to be paid.

It is the same Ashram which is covered under Beatles' Ashram. It was established by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1960 with all the facilities like big kitchen, a Post office, a Printing Press with research facilities and excellent design of accommodation.
