The plan of the current research was to explore the diverse pharmacognostic values and to assess the antioxidant action of the rhizomes of Nardostachys jatamansi (D. Don) DC. by the DPPH method. Aqueous, ethanol, petroleum ether and chloroform extracts of the rhizomes were arranged and applied to Phytochemical viewing which publicized the occurrence of carbohydrates, proteins, steroids, terpenoids, glycosides, flavonoids, and lipids. The antioxidant action of the plant extracts was also resolute by the DPPH process with ascorbic acid as benchmark. The grades obtained in this research hold the utilize of Nardostachys jatamansi (D. Don) DC. In herbal medication and it can be utilized as a potent antioxidant in the management of many diseases resulting from additional reactive oxygen species occurrence.
