Global Ayurveda Village is to transform Kerala into the world capital of Ayurveda.

#EnteThiruvananthapuram: The inauguration ceremony of the proposed Kinfra Global Ayurveda village at Thonnackal held on 12th Feb in Trivandrum. Chief Minister Oommen Chandy inaugurated the event while Minister for Industries P.K Kunhalikutty laid the foundation stone and Health Minister V.S Sivakumar unveiled the logo.

The Global village was first suggested by Dr Sam Pitroda, Chairman of National Innovation Council, who identified Ayurveda as one the Key areas of potential development for the state. The Rs200 crore project will come up near Bio 360 Life Science Park in Thonnakkal and will be completed in three phases in four years.

The Global Ayurvedic Village is envisaged to be implemented on a PPP basis. Investors will be given the opportunity for promoting health tourism. Environment-friendly huts and cottages which will have specific standards to treat the demands of international tourists will be constructed.

Global Ayurveda Village is the first Integrated ‘Center of Clinical Excellence’ for Ayurveda in Kerala. All related clinical departments will come up at the Ayurveda Village. The project will offer a one-stop destination for all Ayurvedic treatments in a modern and scientific environment.

The Village will blend the most modern scientific developments with classical Ayurveda. A trans-national research and documentation centre, an international academy, a finishing school and a digital library are also proposed as part of the project.

Global Ayurveda Village is aimed at global acceptance of Ayurveda by the world and to transform Kerala into the world capital of Ayurveda.
