Rishikesh known as the yoga capital of the world, began to gain popularity with western travelers in the early 1970s, when the Beatles left England behind for the Rishikesh ashram of their then guru, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Although the Beatles stint in Rishikesh only spanned a few weeks, the legacy that their voyage left behind lives to this day.
