Abstract: The present article deals with study of Pharmacognostic, Phytochemical and Physicochemical analysis of Curcuma aromatica Salisb rhizome, a member of family Zingiberaceae. The rhizomes of Curcuma aromatica Salisb reported to have good medicinal values in traditional system of medicines. Pharmacognostic parameters were carried out. Phytochemical parameters of rhizomes were performed for the chemicals constituents like alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, tannins, amino acids and gum & mucilage. Physicochemical screening of the powdered rhizome showed 16.6% Total Ash, 2.8% Acid Insoluble Ash, 3.93% Water Soluble Ash, 0.4% Alcohol Soluble Extract, 0.8% Water Soluble Extract and 3.14% Moisture Content.
