Kalari Kovilakom, the palace of the ancient Vengunad Kingdom in Kerala now converted into a palace for Ayurveda, offers Ayurveda in its most authentic and substantive form as the Rajas of Vengunad would have had it.
Adhering to the strict tenets of Ayurveda as a universal healing art rather than a medical system, the treatment offered is a combination of the physical, psychological and spiritual therapies with the approach to health that is as relevant to the modern world as it was to the ancient world. Nothing has been re-invented, nothing diluted.
The Ayurveda treatments are complimented and supported by yoga and meditation practices. Ayurveda works from outside in.Yoga works from inside out. Both in harmony work towards the wholeness of being.
The Kalari Kovilakom Palace is by no means an ashram. While living in the comforts of The Palace, we invite you to have a glimpse of an experience of a lifestyle that was advocated in the Ancient Indian traditions. This lifestyle helps you to balance your energies, to balance the outer, material world and the inner, spiritual world, leaving you refreshed, energetic and a more whole person.
