Abstract
The traditional system of medicine involves the use of different plant extracts for treating various ailments. The use of medicinal plants as medicines is based on the folklore remedies used in different parts of the world. Curcuma caesia is lesser known species of the genus and has been used for centuries as folklore medicines. On the basis of pharmacological attributes of this plant as authenticated by various scientific studies, the rhizome is considered as potent source of medicine over the synthetic drugs. Recent advances in the research work in this plant and submission of the gene sequences in the databases has prompted us to compile this review. It deals about the plant and all the scientific studies carried out to introduce the plant and bring awareness about lesser known species to the scientific community. Presence of medicinally important bioactive compounds in Curcuma caesia depicts that it has great potential for becoming a future drug.
