In February 1968, the Beatles visited the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram A.K.A Beatles Ashram in Rishikesh, attracted by his Transcendental Meditation. The Beatles composed numerous songs during their time at the ashram, many of which appear on the band’s self-titled double album, also known as the “White Album”. Since then numerous travellers have journeyed to Rishikesh as Yoga spread around the globe.
Smitten by the heavenly aura of the holy township, the band members Ringo Starr awaited his stay in Rishikesh for 10 days, Paul McCartney for five weeks while John Lennon and George Harrison spent eight weeks learning meditation in the spiritually awakening environs of the celestial city.
Distance from MVT to Beatles Ashram is approximately 3.1 km.
