“Lord Dhanwandhari” is believed to be an incarnation of “Lord Vishnu”. He is regarded as God of medicine and the father of the Ayurvedic system of medicine. He organized and classified the Ayurveda and set the guidelines for the present day system.

Aanakkal is a famous Dhanwanthari temple in kerala. The ‘Ashtamangalya Devaprasnam’ conducted at the temple premises a few years back revealed that the idol of Lord Dhanwandhari at Aanakkal temple was consecrated some 2125 years back. A saint while passing through the place had experienced the presence of a divine force in a pond near the present temple. The power of penance enabled him to recognize the divinity. He performed the rituals laid down in the Vedas for invocation and consecrated the idol of Lord Dhanwandhari. The same idol is still worshipped here.
