The Beatles Cathedral Gallery, Rishikesh, India

On this trip to India, i spent about a month in Rishikesh, and that's after about 5 and 6 weeks there on each of my last two trips. By far one of the coolest things i've found there though was brand new:

The Beatles Cathedral Gallery, a collection of art just created apparently less than a year ago. Apparently the hall was the Satsang Hall of the "Beatles Ashram," which was the ashram of The Maharishi Mahesh. It is now a ruin, in the middle of the jungle, and you have to either hike through the jungle and climb through a hole in the wall to sneak in, or bribe a Baba to open the "No Entry" gate. And then there is this. It is shocking and wonderful and positive.

Go like their Facebook page, "BeatlesCathedralGallery" and check out the The Beatles Cathedral Gallery film about how they made it happen:-)

Here are some photos i took there, i hope you enjoy them:-)

Thank you to you all!:-)
It is a beautiful use of an abandoned space, a wonderful coming together of human energies, and, an amazing addition to Rishikesh!:-)
