The Beatles Ashram, Rishikesh

(3.7/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Now deserted, The Beatles Ashram rose to fame thanks to the Fab Four's efforts to draw closer to Indian culture and spirituality. The ashram was known as an academy for meditation, with all of the now-abandoned stone bungalows once fully equipped with running water and electricity. Today, graffiti influenced by the band covers the abandoned buildings, with fans from the world over paying homage to this significant stepping stone in the career of The Beatles.

  • Even if you haven't been a fan of the Beatles, the place is interesting because it has stories to tell. Despite being in ruins, there is graffiti, done by a Thai couple, told me, that lead us to a time that was memorable, lived by the Beatles. The site, before a piece of virgin forest, keeps the nature intact, and you may think that all of a sudden, a tiger will come to your front, because they and the elephants lived there formerly.

  • You haaaave to go see it. Totally worth it. So peaceful and tranquil. You can do yoga in your own listening to the birds and river in this abandoned temple as nature slowly takes over.
  • There's nothing much to see over there and there was a ticket of 150 rupees per person so which was not worth it
  • Good place to come in the night time
  • Good for a walk once...
