Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilion
Ayurveda spread to Sri Lanka from India around 6th century BC to become the main form of medical practice for centuries. The reigning monarchy on the island at the time contributed significantly to the development of Ayurveda with some even specializing as Ayurvedic Physicians.  Until the introduction of western medicine in the 19th century, it was the indigenous medical practitioners that attended to the health of the people. Even today, Ayurveda is very much a part of Sri Lanka’s National Health Care system and is monitored by the Department of Indigenous Medicine. Ayurveda is a completely natural and holistic healing system which promotes general well-being and seeks not only to cure disease but also to rejuvenate the body. It has also proved to be very effective in curbing modern day stress and in promoting a positive mental attitude and relaxation of the mind. Hence, you don’t have to be sick to benefit from this ancient healing wisdom.The common medicinal ingredients used in Ayurveda therapies are herbal teas, powders, oils, herbal wines and pastes made out of local medicinal plants, fruits and vegetables. The Sinharaja rainforest in Sri Lanka’s central region is a natural `storehouse’ of these Ayurvedic medicinal plants. Some of the ingredients are also imported from the foothills of the Himalayas in India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan. This journey of `Ayurvedic rejuvenation’ takes you through the magnificent landscapes of this island nation – dense tropical rainforests, tranquil rivers and the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, paddy fields and mountain peaks.
