History
In the Puranas, it is mentioned that Lord Dhanwanthri appeared from Palazhi or the Sea of Milk and carried a bowl of Amrit or the elixir of life. The narration says that gods and demons were busy churning this Palazhi as they were seeking a cure for senility on account of the curse laid upon them by Rishi Durvasav.
