Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Ashram

Historic Building in Rishikesh

Just south of Swarg Ashram is what’s left of the original Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Ashram, where the Beatles stayed and apparently wrote much of the White Album. After decades of neglect, the Forest Department has decided to reclaim it from the jungle growth that had nearly consumed it, turning it into a pilgrimage site for Beatles fans, as well as an evolving graffiti-art museum. Don't miss the meditation hall, with bizarre warrens of rock-lined hallways, plus striking new paintings.

There are big discounts for students, but you'll have to show your student ID.
