Abstract: Amraharidra, botanically equated to Curcuma amada (Family, Zingiberaceae), is an important drug of Ayurveda. Rhizomes of other species (C. aromatica and C. zedoaria) of this genus, being rich in essential oil contents, are sold in herbal drug markets by the same vernacular name. Present study is aimed to standardize botanically all these three species for their authenticity, identity and validity.
