This residential facility brings in the best medical doctors and therapies from around the world.
SOUKYA is located on thirty acres of beautifully cultivated land in the countryside east of Bangalore, about 50 minutes from the airport. Nine major structures are built around an oval, the centre of which is filled with lawns, flowers, trees and a symbolic Open Portal that encourages an open heart, mind and soul. These nine buildings – the medical centre, the administrative centre, the yoga hall, the therapy centre, the dining hall, and the four residential clusters are all built in the South Indian traditional style, making use of as many local and handmade materials as possible. All buildings are ground-level structures, helping the body to connect at all times with the magnetic force of the earth.
SOUKYA has been designed with functionality and aesthetics in mind. From the fountains to the main structures, from the gardens to the orchards, all attempts have been made to retain as much of nature as possible. The foliage, perennial plants and flowers that require less water and maintenance are of many different colours. Avenues of flowering trees have also been planted to ensure flowers throughout the year.
