Beatles Retreat Opened To The Public (Top Story)

On Thursday Beatles Retreat Opened To The Public was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) An abandoned spiritual retreat in India where The Beatles wrote songs for their White Album has been opened to the public. The band spent time at the retreat in the town of Rishikesh in 1968 where they learned to meditate and also penned a number of tracks.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi ran the ashram but it was abandoned by him and his followers in the 1970s. It was taken over by the local forestry department in 2003 but remained a big draw for fans of the fab four.

Many fans snuck in or paid a small bribe to a security guard to gain access, according to the BBC. Authorities opened the ashram to visitors this week and are charging up to 700 rupees (7) for entry. Read more - here.
