Ashram Where Beatles Stayed in 1960s, Open for Public now - Rishikesh, Uttarakhand

Ashram Where Beatles Stayed in 1960s, Open for Public now - Rishikesh, Uttarakhand


The Beatles (The band learned meditation and wrote 48 songs) travelled to Rishikesh in Feburuary, 1968 to attend an advanced transcendental Meditation (TM) training session at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Their visit was one of the band’s most productive periods to attract media attention. Due to George Harrison’s commitment, the Beatles interest in the Maharishi changed Western attitudes about Indian spirituality and encouraged the study of Transcendental Meditation.

The Beatles first met the Maharishi in London in August 1967 and then attended a seminar in Bangor, Wales. After this meeting, they planned to attend the entire Ten day session, but due the death of their manager, Brian Epsten their stay was cut short. Due to learning more, they kept in contact with the Maharishi and made arrangements to spend time with him at his teaching center located near Rishikesh. The place in Northern India, Rishikesh is known as “the Vally of the saints” at the foothills of the Himalayas.

The spiritiual center, where the band learned meditation and wrote 48 songs. It was abandoned for years, then taken over by local authorities in 2003. It is now open for paying visitors.
