    Located alongside the river Ganges, in the holy "Valley of the Saints", the International Academy of Meditation, was a 14-acre compound. It was built in 1963 with a $100,000 gift from American heiress Doris Duke, on land leased from the Uttar Pradesh Forest Department.

    In February 1968 the Beatles travelled here to attend a course in Transcendental Meditation. While here, they wrote more than 18 songs which ended up on the White Album and two on Abbey Road.

    The ashram itself was abandoned by the guru and his followers in the mid-1970s and gradually reclaimed by nature.
