Ayurveda College Tripunithura - ACT Ernakulam - ACT

Like other branches of oriental knowledge, Ayurveda also has its deep roots in Kerala. Advent of Buddhism (AD 5-6 cent.) in this land contributed much to the spread of classical Ayurveda. Another important fact was that caste was no a bar in the study and practice of Ayurveda in ancient Kerala. So there were various traditions or Gurushishya parambara, transferring, updating and perfecting the knowledge and its application through generations. Knowledge of this science of life was imparted through Gurukula system of education. But in the modern age, more institutionalised, systematic way of learning became a necessity. This need was felt by the ruler's of erstwhile, states in Kerala in the pre independent period itself. First ever study centre for Ayurveda in India, under the Government not in Gurukula model was established at Thiruvananthapuram in 1889 A.D. But in Cochin State, formal Ayurvedic education was started only in 1926, in the Sanskrit college at Tripunithura. This college was established in 1914 by the then King Rama Varma Raja to commemorate his sixtieth birthday. Many members of the Royal family were scholars in Ayurveda and this led to the keen interest in the propagation and education of Ayurveda. In 1936, separate courses for Ayurveda, Vedanta, Nyaya etc., were introduced. Ayurveda Bhushanam was the title given those who passed the final examinations. Trikkovil Achyuta Varier, the Principal of Sanskrit College in 1956 had made so many efforts for delinking theAyurvedic department from Sanskrit college due to the limitations of Ayurvedic education at Sanskrit college. Finally the department has been separated and Ayurveda College was established. The last king of Cochin, Parikshith Ramavarma Thampuran allowed the college be functioned at the Royal Guest House. The new course D.A.M (Diploma in Ayurvedic Medicine) was introduced and had an improved and unified syllabus through out Kerala.
