Abstract: Background: Recently, there is an increasing shift in interest of people towards the drugs of natural origin.Therefore, the economic importance of Ayurvedic medicines increased exponentially.A crucialhurdle that is impeding the promotion in the usage of these medications is lack of properstandardization of drug and good quality control measures that are to be taken whilepreparation of the drug. Many adulterants and cheaper substitutes are being added to theoriginal crude drug to meet the increasing demands and requirements leading to causation ofunwanted side effects and adverse effects. Hence the standardization of crude materials is animportant prerequisite which is needed in order to prevent the negative outcomes and toensure a reproducible quality of Ayurvedic medications that helps us to justify its safety andeffectiveness. The Pharmacognostic, Phyto chemical, Physio- chemical research of therhizome of VanaHaridra (Curcuma aromaticaSalisb.) has been discussed in this presentarticleto evaluate its safety and efficacy. Aim: To evaluate Pharmacognostic features including Macroscopic, Microscopic features of rhizome of VanaHaridra. To evaluate Physio-chemical and Phytochemical analysis of rhizome of Vana Haridra. Materials and Methods: Free hand section of rhizome was done to identify the microscopic structures of the drug. Physiochemical analysis and Phytochemical analysis were done based on the standard methods. Results: The rhizome is identified as a standard specimen and is devoid of impurities and adulterants.
