SAH Welcomes You

Saranya Ayurveda Hospital (SAH) is a NABH Accredited and ISO certified authentic and traditional Ayurvedic treatment institution under the auspices of Aashirwad Health and Education Trust, supported by The Arya Vaidya Chikitsalayam & Research Institute and The Arya Vaidya Pharmacy (Cbe) Ltd.

Saranya Ayurveda Hospital is the first hospital under the AVP Group to get the prestigious NABH Accreditation which ensures high quality of care and patient safety and shows the hospital's commitment to continuous quality improvement. 

Saranya Ayurveda Hospital and AHET are established by Padma Shri PR Krishnakumar on a 30 acres campus which he believed will become a fulcrum for all authentic Ayurveda activities relating to clinical, educational, research and manufacturing services. The campus is located in Navakkarai, on Coimbatore - Palakkad Highway, in the foothills of Boluvampatty ranges of the Western Ghats, bestowed with beautiful nature and clean air. The healing quality of Nature and the presence of the Chottanikkara Temple make the campus, divine and serene.

Padmashri Dr. P.R. Krishnakumar was born in 1951 as the son of Arya Vaidyan P. V. Rama Variar, the founder of Arya Vaidya Pharmacy (Coimbatore) LTD and Smt.Pankajam Rama Variar. His father, Aryavaidyan P.V. Rama Variar, had been the only son of Vaidya vichakshanan Mankulangara Kunjan Variar, a reputed Sanskrit scholar, poet and physician. P.V Rama Variar, after his tutelage with Vaidyaratnam PS Varriar of Kottakkal, established the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy (Coimbatore) LTD in 1948.

After his demise, Dr. P.R. Krishnakumar led the AVP group to new heights with his efforts to standardize research in Ayurveda and to establish a global scientific footing for Ayurveda by getting first clinical research on Ayurveda treatment of rheumatoid arthritis by WHO with ICMR partnership.

He was the Chancellor of Avinashilingam University and Chairman of CAReKeralam (Confederation for Ayurvedic Renaissance-Keralam Limited), a public limited company established as a cluster of Ayurveda industries with the support of AYUSH department of Government of India for standardization of Ayurvedic medicines.

In recognition of his contributions to the field of Ayurveda, the Government of India conferred the prestigious “Padma Shri” award on him in 2009. In his words, it is “a recognition for Ayurveda”. He was also awarded the Dhanwanthari Award in 2016 by the Department of AYUSH, Govt. of India. He worked tirelessly for Ayurvedic participation in the Global pandemic scene until his demise on 16th September 2020.
