Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Ashram is also known as Beatles Ashram because the members of the prominent international music band Beatles stayed here. The Beatles came here to grab knowledge and training to gain transcendental meditation, and Maharishi Yogi helped illuminate their souls. Today, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is a popular ashram of Rishikesh. This popularity was gained by the Beatles but has been maintained due its effective courses and enchanting aura.
However, Maharishi Ashram has been closed officially, but the tranquility has yet not been faded. The building is abandoned but the lecture hall has been turned into an open-air gallery under the project called Beatles Cathedral. Lyrics of their songs and their pictures are painted all over the walls. The ashram could be a bit hard to find and you may seek help from locals, who are more than happy to help. It is located 700 meters away from Parmarth Niketan Ashram and just one kilometer from Ram Jhula. Visit the ashram if you are looking for a leisure stroll.
