Visit The Beatles Ashram in India

I was aware the dilapidated Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Ashram still stood somewhere in Rishakesh but hadn't figured on finding it so it was an unexpected surprise when our tour guide stopped at the front gate especially for me and announced we were at The Beatles Ashram. 
The complex itself is massive with many buildings, meditation domes and ornaments along roads being slowly over run by the surrounding hillside forest. 
The real thrill came for me though when I stumbled upon this special "cathedral" building decorated in homage to The Beatles by some very talented artistic fans over the years. 
A wonderful unexpected surprise on my first day in Rishakesh, the same day I cleanse myself in the Ganges  and so now added to the Life List.
