An Ayurveda Nutrition Centre (Poshana Mandiraya) constructed by the Sri Lanka Navy and funded by the Indigenous Medicine Ministry was ceremonially opened by Indigenous Medicine Minister Salinda Dissanayake in Nagadeepa, Jaffna recently.

The opening of an Ayurveda Centre in Nagadeepa fulfills a long-felt need of the public. The centre will benefit people living in neighbouring islets and Jaffna as well, sources said.

He also praised the completion of the facility, originally estimated at Rs 10 million, utilising only Rs 3.5 million due to the excellent management by the Navy.
