The year 2023 marks the 150th anniversary of Vaidya Ratna Pandit D. Gopalacharlu. The Shree Ayurvedic Group run by the sixth-generation descendants of Pandit D Gopalacharlu takes great pride in celebrating the 150th anniversary of their founder by organizing a number of events spread across the year.

The Shree Ayurvedic Group headquartered in West Mambalam, Chennai, has a legacy of 170 plus years of significant contribution towards the prevention and cure of human diseases. It was established in the 1850s by Pandit D. Ramakrishnamacharlu hailing from Machalipatnam in Andhra Pradesh, India.

His successor and his elder son Vaidyaratna Pandit D. Gopalacharlu gained international recognition for his extraordinary work in the field of Ayurveda and medical care. He further went on to establish a manufacturing unit “Ayurvedasramam Pvt Ltd” in 1898 to make Ayurvedic medicines available to people at large. Ayurveda Marthanda Dr D. Desikacharlu and Dr D. Gopalacharlu nurtured, developed and expanded the Institution to great heights.

In recent decades, Late Dr D. Desikacharlu & Dr D. Jayashree Desikacharlu have branched out and created many core centres based on the needs of the 21st century. Currently, Dr Jayashree Desikacharlu leads the Institution along with the 6th generation doctor of the family, her sons, Dr D. Srikrishna & D. Sriranga.

One of the significant events being organized by the Shree Hospital Group in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Pandit D. Gopalacharlu is the Vamsha Vaidya felicitation and award ceremony. The purpose is to recognise the efforts and contributions of Vaidyas across India and abroad in continuing the lineage and science of Ayurveda over several generations, even in times of great challenge. The objective is to encourage the current generation of Vaidyas to be proud of their achievements and enthuse them to continue promoting the science and practice of Ayurveda. The award ceremony is scheduled for the 24th of February, 2023 at Hotel Green Park, Vadapalani, Chennai.

The hope is to let the world know that Ayurveda offers preventive healthcare through a natural lifestyle, holistic means of treating diseases with wonderful time-tested remedies for various diseases and wonderful doctors who carry the hope of relief.


This website ayurworldforum.com that has been launched on the 24th February, 2023, is another unique initiative of the Shree Ayurvedic Group, aimed at bringing all the Vaidyas under one umbrella as a united force to promote the science and practice of Ayurveda.
