The Arya Vaidya Pharmacy & Chikitsalayam (hospital) was started in the year 1957 in the heart of Coimbatore City.This is one of the first Ayurvedic hospitals to achieve ISO 9001: 2000 certification for its compliance with international quality standards. The hospital provides classical Panchakarma and traditional Kerala & classical ayurvedic treatments for a wide range ailments. It also offers a range of relaxation & rejuvenation therapies.
There is a beautiful Dhanwantari Temple inside this campus. Dhanwantari is an Avatar (reincarnation) of Vishnu in Hindu tradition. He appears in the Vedas & Puranas as the Physician of the Gods & is also considered as the God of Ayurvedic medicine. In Hinduism people pray to Dhanwantari for good health. We visited this temple on Pongal day to offer special prayers and could take a few pictures:
