Similar cots were used about 300 years ago. We have a Ayurvedic cot at Padmanabhapuram Palace, Thuckalay, Kanyakumari Dist, India, Owned by Government of Kerala. This cot was used by King Marthanda Verma who has a traditional understanding of Ayurveda and Siddha medicine. It is believed that the healing effect of the different Ayurvedic wood species used help in healing and energizing our body.
The cot is made from 32 different types of rare Ayurvedic species wood sourced from Western Ghats, Meghalaya, Assam and Kashmir. The layout of the wood blocks has a critical role in the design and functionality of the Cot. The unique layout would help provide the right healing effect on different parts of the body during contact and use.
