Rubia cordifolia and Rubia tinctorum (Rubiaceae) known as, Manjishtha, Indian madder are most commonly used plants in traditional system of medicine.The plant contains substantial amounts of anthraquinones, triterpenoids especially in the roots which is responsible for nti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, urinary disorders, antistress antimicrobial, hepatoprotective, radio protective, anticancer, antimicrobial, antifungal, hypotensive, analgesic, antimalarial, antioxidant, antileukemic & mutagenic functions, immunomodulatory, and antioxidant activity. This study is aimed at assessing the scientific evaluation of four market samples of Manjishtha for the study of pharmacognostical and physiochemical analysis, which covered the macroscopic and microscopic features and Phytochemical parameters such as pH, total ash value, water-soluble extract values were assessed in the preliminary physicochemical screening. The ethanol extract of rhizomes was subjected to TLC for the separation of components.
