Asokalayam is an ayurveda chikitsa kendram and research center. The word Asokalayam comes from its Sanskrit roots – Asoka & Alaya. Asoka means absence of sorrow and Alaya means residence. Combination of these two words illuminates the meaning of a place without sorrow. Asokalayam is a place where all the physical and mental sufferings are resolved.

In ancient times, the village- Thiruvegappura itself was familiar as Asokalayam. The Lord of Thiruvegappura temple was known as Asokalayeshan on the premises of whom this hospital is located now.
