Negombo is the fourth largest city in Sri Lanka. Negombo is known for its huge and old

Negombo is the fourth largest city in Sri Lanka. Negombo is known for its huge and old fishing industry with busy fish markets and sandy beaches. The Bandaranaike International Airport of Sri Lanka is about 5–6 km from Negombo Metropolis. The Airport Expressway links the capital Colombo through the Katunayake Interchange with Negombo city minimizing travelling time to just 20 minutes.

The name "Negombo" was first used by the Portuguese; the Sinhala name Mīgamuva means the "Group of Bees". It is also named as the little Rome, since nearly two thirds of its population profess a Catholic faith. Negombo is a paradise near the ocean. The beautiful Negombo lagoon is famous for water sports. The northern border of the city is formed by the Ma Oya river which meets the Indian Ocean. The Dutch canal runs along the city and connects Muthurajawela wetlands to sea.

Dutch Canal

Negombo is about 2 meters above sea level, and Negombo's geography is a mix of land and water. The Dutch canal flows in the heart of the city.

The legacy of the Dutch colonial era can be seen in the Dutch Fort, constructed in 1672, other buildings and the extensive canal system that runs 120 km from Colombo in the South, through Negombo to Puttalam in the north.

The Negombo lagoon is one of the most scenic landmarks of Negombo. There are over 190 species of wildlife and plenty of birds in its mangroves.

For generations the lagoon has provided the fishers with a plentiful supply of crabs, shrimps, lobsters, cuttlefish and many native species of fish. The fishermen rely mainly on their traditional knowledge of the seasons for their livelihood, using outrigger canoes carved out of tree trunks and nylon nets to bring in modest catches from September through April.


The word Ayurveda is made out of Ayu and Veda. Ayu is conglomeration of Physical body, mind, sense organs and the soul which experiences happiness or the misery. The word Veda is described as a union of science, art, philosophy and a way of life. Therefore together Ayurveda is understood as the art of healthy living or the science of life.

Ancient tradition

Ayurveda is an Upaveda (sub part) of Atharva veda, one of four Vedic texts, and is considered a source of eternal knowledge. Knowledge of Ayurveda had been subject to times of dark periods where there was difficulty in learning and receiving the authentic wisdom. Its existence today despite these hurdles itself is proof of its eternity and continuity.

Ayurveda from its roots in Indus valley has spread its benevolent wings all over Asia. As the legend begins the seers and divine scholars of Ayurveda like lord Brahma , Ashvini Putra ( twin deities) , Indra and Daksha Prajapati have received the knowledge by word of mouth. At the beginning of times it was easier to receive the knowledge due to pious nature of people.

But as the era progresses and as intelligence, memory and life span declines the knowledge was recorded in the form of scriptures. Definite texts of utmost value in the form of major triad and minor triad have surfaced. As the authors of ancient times were humble enough to submit their literary abilities to the almighty, these texts are ambiguous about the time of authorship and authorship it self.

One memorable event mentioned in classics is the gathering of seers to clarify contradictory points regarding Ayurveda and that Pulasthi rishi (King Ravana's Grand Father) has taken part of it. The time when Indus valley was one stretch of land where southern part was called as Tamrapanni- land of bronze color , a strong devotee of lord Shiva ruled this area by the name king Ravana. King Ravana valorous in his reign was also a learned scholar and excelled in Rasa Shatram(alchemy), which bought him immortality. Three books remain till date, i.e. Arka Prakasha, Naadi Prakasha and Kumara Tantra which stands as proof of his expertise in different fields like herbal pharmacology, pulse diagnosis and pediatrics. Authenticity of these texts is controversial yet all the books are written in similar manner as a dialogue between king Ravana and his queen. There are many other books of different disciplines attributed to king Ravan in the field of legislature and astrology. As the time progresses, the Indus valley civilization flourishes in to a huge empire with prosperity in worldly things as well as philosophy.

It becomes an ancient tradition for the princes to master in 64 arts and Ayurveda is mentioned as one of these. Therefore ayurveda received royal patronage and Tamrapanni has witnessed excellent physicians as well as surgeons amongst royalty in the coming generations. The texts written by kings like Buddhadasa are valid proof of continuity of practice of Ayurveda and its development under an indigenous touch. Later, during the reign of King Devanam piyathissa , Emperor Asoka’s own son Mahinda Thero, brought knowledge of Buddhism to Ceylon, reviving the tradition of Ayurveda in Sri Lanka. Being a Buddhist monk, Mahinda Thero initiated the tradition of monks participating in health care. Till recently main temples had ‘pirivena’ which is the study place of monks and they were given knowledge of Ayurveda along with religious knowledge. Therefore Ayurveda and traditional medicine was practiced through out country with a touch of compassion. Evidence of these can be still seen in ancient cities like Mihintale, Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa which holds ancient relics of hospitals and treatments places and even maternity homes till today . Today Ayurveda is practiced as an organized health system along with other natural therapies like Unani and Homeopathy systems of medicine in Sri Lanka.

At the Ashram Center for Ayurveda we combine this indigenous knowledge with Ayurveda and for maintaining health and to treat illnesses pertaining to mind and body.

Come Join us to experience our unique treatments with a touch of true Sri Lankan hospitality at the heart of Negombo.

The Ashram Approach

At the Ashram we are serious about your health. We practice Ayurveda true to its principles restoring the balance of Dosha and thereby bringing a total feeling of health and wellbeing.

This is why we follow a well structured process. The steps of this process are as follows:

Initial Ayurvedic Consultation

For us each person is an individual. Therefore before an Ayurvedic treatment there will be a consultation with our physicians where we take in to account the Prakriti (natural temperament), doshic imbalances, life style and dietetic habits as well as specific life events such as trauma or accidental injuries. Our physician will then decide your specific treatment plan to bring back the balance of Doshas.

Recommended treatment plan

Once the physician decides the individual treatment plan for you it will be explained by the physician. We encourage our guests to actively participate in the treatment by taking responsibility during treatment and to take medicines on time and to be in contact with the physician to report your progress. Without your personal commitment treatment cannot be completely successful.

The therapies and the herbs used in your therapy would be what is ideal for you , it may not match with another’s therapies or the herbs or timings. Please do not be worried about this fact.

Assessment of treatment

While you undergo treatment at the Ashram, we will continuously observe your progress. Our physicians will arrange frequent consultations so that your health concerns can be given a patient hearing. This will help them to change your therapies and medicines where it is necessary.

Doshic balance and future advice

At the end of your treatment your Doshas will be assessed and the physicians will advice you on the diet and life style you need to adopt to maintain the Doshic balance.

Yoga & Meditation

Physical body and mind holds equal importance in the disease production. As the physical body is treated with herbs and therapies it is also important to pacify the mind and satiate the soul. Even though misunderstood as a method of exercise Yoga is a valuabe method of stabilizing your nervous energy . ‘Yoga is for liberation’ according to Lord Patanjali, and here at Ashram we share knowledge of Yoga keeping that aim in mind.
