Madhava Matam CVN Kalari was started by Shri. Ramachandran Nair in the year of 1974. Later he opened branches of this institution at many places inside and outside Kerala during different time period. Capital center of Madhava Matam is continuing in Pappanamcode as a hub of traditional Ayurvedic treatments and as an authority of northern style of Kalaripayattu, which is located 5 kilometers away from Trivandrum Central.

Work for establishing Kalaripayattu and traditional medicinal practice were done simultaneously by Ramachandran Gurukkal, which made Madhava Matam an authentic place of approach and referral center for martial art lovers and patients. Various Kalari centers opened under the supervision of Gurukkal inside and outside Kerala given a good public figure to Madhava Matam.
