Indian ayurved and herbal medicines are world’s oldest and most well documented knowledge-based healing systems. To make this medicinal system acceptable as per current global norms with backing of current tools of research, the vanaushadhi trust has been doing some commendable work in this field.
There are nearly 500 herbal plants within the large campus of Keshav Srushti, some of them being rare species. The herbarium takes care of classifying and storing the data about these herbal plants. This herbarium and the data it has, is being used for study and research by the trust and is also made available to Ayurved and Botany students who visit the laboratory on study tours.
