In February 1968 the Beatles travelled to the Indian town of Rishikesh to attend a session of transcendental Meditation at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It was this visit that changed the world’s outlook of Indian spirituality. This was considered to be the Beatles’ most productive time, they wrote various songs during this visit most of which gained huge media attention and commercial success. The facility at that time covered an area of 14 acres, 46 meters above the river and surrounded by jungles.
