Charaka Bagan: Ayurvedic Garden of Medicinal Plants

The Vedic Index lists as many as 260 medicinal herbs. The Charak Samhita, an ancient manual on Ayurveda, attributed to sage Charak lists 500 medicinal plants, while Sushruta’s lists mentioned 385. It is agreed that there are 927 plants of therapeutic value.

The Shri Kunja is creating a garden of over 500 varities of medicinal plants and healing herbs mentioned in the Charka Samhita and the Atharva Veda. It will serve as an educational site for botanists and lay persons.



The Charaka Bagan will also conserve local varieties of healing herbs in the area, and generate interest on conservation of nature among young adults, rural folk, voluntary workers and environmentalists.

Primary Health Care through Plants

One main aim of preserving the garden is to hold training workshops and impart indigenous knowledge about the efficiency of healing herbs and plants in primary health care.
