When John Henry Garstin, the Private Secretary to Lord Napier (Governor of Madras) was visiting the ruler of Travancore in the late 1800’s, His Highness Sree Moolam Thirunal Maharaja, he was suffering intensely from diabetic blisters. The Diwan of Travancore, Sri T Rama Rao, advised he undergo treatment from one of the bright young palace physicians, the Kottaram Vaidyan, Sri Vasudevan Unni. Mr. Garstin was impressed with Sri Unni and recommended to the Governor to start an Ayurveda Patashala. It was set up at the Kashayapura (Ayurveda Manufacturing area) of the Travancore Palace and our founder, Sri N Vasudevan Unni was appointed as the superintendent and Head Physician of the first Ayurveda Patashala. Upon his death his nephew (who had had trained under him) renamed the Vaidyasala to Vasudeva Vilasam Vaidyasal in his honor. The patashala was taken over by the government and is the current Govt. Ayurveda College of Trivandrum. In 1971, a multispeciality Ayurveda hospital was established as a tribute to Sri. N Vasudevan Unnir at the same location as the patashala.
