The Future of the Beatles’ Ashram

The iconic Rishikesh ashram the Beatles stayed in during their 1968 sojourn is in a sad state of disarray. Now owned by the Indian government, the grounds are overgrown with weeds and have been looted by local villagers.

The Washington Post reports that Maggie O’Hara, a former actress, has submitted plans to turn the ashram into a home for 2,500 street children. The plans have stalled as O’Hara navigates through many layers of bureaucracy.
