KALARI KOVILAKOM

The palace of Ayurveda

SOUTH INDIA - Kerala, Kollengode

Can there be a royal road to deep healing? We believe there can. Kalari Kovilakom is the Palace for Ayurveda, perhaps the first and only one of its kind. It offers intensive programmes in wellness based this ancient Indian science. And it offers them in a magnificent palatial setting that took years of restoration to create. Yet, Kalari Kovilakom gives you something infinitely more valuable. A chance to begin your life all over again.

At Kalari, every therapy is personal. Our treatments are individually developed for you by our doctors, often combined with yoga and other methods to provide deep-seated, lasting change  from within. There are no game rooms, no shopping expeditions, no television sets. The evenings are alive with chanting and hymns, unsullied by the sounds of the city. You are in a space like no other on earth that we know of.

KALARI KOVILAKOM

Kalari Kovilakom is the Palace for Ayurveda, perhaps the first and only one of its kind. Its face is the face of the warrior-king, elegant and expansive. But its heart is that of a sage, offering a deep healing, a doorway to the union of the mind, body and spirit.

If the old legends are to be believed, healing is part of Kalari's very soul. Stories are told of a Prince who came to the foothills of Kerala's Annamalai Hills around the 10th century. It seems he was afflicted with a particularly troublesome skin ailment. So he came to cure himself in the healing spring waters of this land. Possibly, he also sought the medicinal Venga tree that grew here in profusion. Dharmavarman stayed on to found a kingdom, Vengunad, 'The Land of the Venga Tree'. And for all the days to come, his descendants held sway over these silent and green foothills. It was in the 19th century that they built Kalari Kovilakom.
