The Journey of Dhanvanthri Nilayam


Dhanvanthri Nilayam Ayurveda Vaidhyasalai was founded in the year 1945 by Dr. Velayutham Pillai, at North Chitrai street, near Meenakshi Amman Temple, Madurai. Later it was shifted to Dhanappamudali street, Madurai, and was developed by Dr. V Somasekar. Dhanvanthri Nilayam has been working and striving hard in treating thousands suffering from several issues. In order to promote the growth and development of Ayurveda Dr. V Somasekar shifted Dhanvanthri Nilayam to Alagappan Nagar, South of Madurai, for further expansion.
Dr. S Dhanvanthri Premvel, completed his Ayurvedic graduation and joined hands since 1995. Through his consistent efforts and dedicated hard work and expertise, patients got cured with the grace of Lord Dhanvanthri. Dr. S Dhanvanthri Premvel with his expertise and deep knowledge in Nadi Pareeksha (pulse reading) could diagnose almost all illnesses and diseases. With the longing for the welfare of people and development of Ayurveda in mind and with the goodwill of the elders, Dhanvanthri Nilayam Ayurveda Vaidhyasalai developed and people from far and long flew in to get treated and healed.
Along with this, Dr. S Dhanvanthri Premvel with full hearted hard work and involvement, inaugurated the in-patient ward in the year 1999, which was even more helpful to the patients. Further, along with the in-patient ward, Dr. Premvel also worked towards the development of the specialised therapy of Ayurveda – The Panchakrma, which made the treatment even more successful. This therapy along with internal medicines helped people achieve the true meaning of Ayurveda – “Heal the diseases & make the healthy-healthier forever”.
The current name Dr. S Dhanvanthri Premvel’s Dhanvanthri Nilayam Ayurveda Vaidhyasalai Pvt. Ltd. is registered as a company from 2017. Mrs. Kavitha Premvel, Managing Director, Dr. Vishak P Dhanvanthri, Director, along with the Chairman are the crux of the new era of Ayurvedic renaissance with the purpose of serving mankind and becoming the epitome of spreading this science to the world. By tapping into our abundant reserves of ancient medicinal knowledge, we can provide holistic treatments with no side effects for all ailments and diseases.
