The Beatles’ Indian Retreat Opens To Visitors
LONDON (AP) — The Indian retreat where The Beatles wrote most of the "White Album" has opened for tourists. The BBC reports the abandoned spiritual retreat in the town of Rishikesh had fallen into disrepair and was taken over by the local forestry department. Beatles fans would sneak in by bribing the gatekeeper or climbing the walls. It's now been restored and foreign visitors pay about $10.50 for admission. The Beatles went there in 1968 to study with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
