About the tour

Beatles Ashram, also known as Chaurasi Kutia, lies in city of Rishikesh on the eastern bank of River Ganges in the foothills of the Himalayas.

During the 1960s, as the International Academy of Meditation, it was the training centre for students of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, which gained world’s attention in 1968 when the English rock band Beatles studied meditation there. They arrived at the Ashram on 16th February 1968 and during their stay at the Ashram, they wrote and composed some of their most popular songs including songs for their self-titled double album - "White Album". The site was abandoned in the 1990s and reverted to the local forestry department in 2003. The site was officially opened to the public in December 2015. It is now known as Beatles Ashram and an exhibition was held in February 2018 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' arrival in Rishikesh – the Yoga capital of the world.
