Beatles Ashram in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand

When The Beatles first came to India in 1968, they spent time at an 18-acre ashram in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand.The ashram is believed to be the place where the band reportedly wrote a lot of their songs, many of which made it to one of their most famous records – the White Album.It was originally run by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who passed away in in 2008, but was abandoned by the guru and his followers in the ’70s.The place saw a brief two-month resurrection in 2012, dubbed The Beatles Cathedral Gallery, as a community art project.And after years of abandonment, it’s back up and running once more, open to all tourists.
