Beatles ashram rishkesh

The place have a inspiring vibes to it and a beautiful lush forest . It's gives you a chill realising the Beatles were standing as the same place you are learning and creating . The place is under raja ji national reseve and you got to buy a ticket for entry , it has a small restaurant inside offering only noodles and nimbu pani yet they were tasty and fulfilling or just I was too hungry roaming around the whole ashram

The ashram is in ruins now. Lot of walking so be prepared for this. Lot of greenery. Can take some amazing pictures. Small canteen serves maggi, tea/coffee, momos and water. Good time pass.

The place can generate an handsome revenue but the condition of ashram shows that Government doesn't bother much. Shall visit in the morning or it will become hot. Opens at 10 AM

Admirer or Follower of Maharshi Mahesh Yogi ji or Beatles, must visit this place
Mar 2021
The Beatles Ashram is also known as ‘Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Ashram’ or ‘84 Kutiya’ or ‘Chaurasi Kutia’. It became popular with Beatles name after the rock band came here for to study meditation in 1968. The ashram is situated on eastern bank of river Ganga, opposite Muni Ki Reti, it is around 1km from the new bridge Janki Setu (or Sita Pul) opened in Nov., 2020 downstream Ram Jhula. If you going by car, park your car in new parking developed on western bank of Ganga at Janki Setu. Then walk from there around 1km. The Ashram was setup in 1960s. During the 1960s and 1970s, as the International Academy of Meditation, it was the training centre for students of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who devised the Transcendental Meditation Technique (TMT). The Ashram was abandoned in 1990 and later taken care by Forest Deptt. It is the part of Rajaji Tiger Reserve.
Entry ticket for Indian is INR 150 and for Students is INR 40. Foreigners have to pay a lot. If you are interested in the Beatles or Maharishi Mahesh Yogi ji, this place will be worth visiting. Ruins of old buildings, scattered meditation kutias, 84 Kutias building, kitchen, post office, printing press, Meditation Hall, living rooms are there. One can see the graffiti on the walls, still looking alive and takes you to 1960s. View of Ganga from top of the hill is amazing. Some exhibits having photographs about TMT, Yogi ji, The Beatles. Animals and birds are displayed here. A small canteen serving snacks, tea, coffee, soft drinks is worth sitting there.

Very nice experience, spend an evening by the river as well
Feb 2021
We visited during sunset and could witness the aarti to the river from the bridge. It's crowded and vehicles are allowed to drive rashly. If you want to avoid it, visit the Laxman jhoola.
Get down on the other end and sit by the stones near the river. It feels awesome, the night view is also great when the bridge is lit. Food options are great, check out the Choti Wala restaurant.

Very unique Ashram with lots of ancients creativity made by historical people. All building structure made by River Ganges rocks and stone. Best place to see the unique view things. Value for money entrance.
