In the year 1968, the world famous band group “Beatles” visited this quaint little ashram to meet a saint called “Maharishi Mahesh Yogi” to practice meditation under his guidance. It gained immediate popularity among the tourists after the visit and became a huge hit. The ruined stone huts of the ashram stands proudly even after its abandonment in the year 1997. The government has been taking measures to turn this ashram located in the foothills of Himalayas into a museum to showcase its huge contribution and historical significance to the society.

Lakshman Jhula
Lakshman Jhula is a marvellous suspension bridge that is very popular among the tourists for its construction connecting the Tehri and Pauri districts of Uttarakhand. The bridge marks its date in the epic saga called “Ramayana” quoting that Lakshman, brother of the Lord Rama crossed the river in a jute bridge where a bridge was built with pillars ,but washed off in a flood of 1924. Later a suspension bridge was constructed at the exact same place which is now visited by many tourists due to its relativity in many sacred places.

The cave is becomes pitch darker to each step we take. We can spot aroma oils and incense sticks next to white mats for a peaceful meditation.
