We are an ancient Roman Catholic family, originally from Kanjirapally, Kerala, India. Now we have our family branches all over the world. Kanjirapally has been famous as a centre of the Ayurveda system of medical treatment for centuries, with thousands of beneficiaries in and outside Kanjirapally. The traditional Ayurveda Physicians of Madukkakuzhy family, who lived in the past centuries were known as \”Vayaskara physicians of the East\”. During the reign of Thekkumkoor Raja, Maukkakuzhy family was renowned for Ayurvedic treatment. Madukkakuzhy family had settled down in the \”Kachaketty Purayidam\” north of the old church, Pazhayapally, by the side of the common route from the royal palace to the Hindhu temple. Tradition says that some of the youngsters in the family were members of the Raja\’s Army and they trained the Raja\’s selected group, in the art of fighting and martial devices.
