About The Beatles Ashram

Originally the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Ashram, the Beatles Ashram rose to fame when it was visited by the famous band- The Beatles. The Beatles came to attend an advanced Transcendental Meditation training assembly along with its family and stayed at the ashram for a brief period. Today the area is in ruins and taken care by the forest department. However, many buildings, meditation cells, and lecture halls are still intact, including Maharishi’s own house and the guesthouse of Beatles. The most famous attraction is the Beatles Cathedral Gallery that has become a graffiti free-for-all and is worth seeing. During their stay in the ashram, Beatles wrote many songs, a total 30 songs actually. There were 48 songs written in seven weeks by others. Many songs became a part of the album The Beatles, i.e., the White Album while the other songs appeared on Abbey Road and solo records.
