Hinduism - Who Was Charaka?

 



(1st–2nd century C.E.?) The Charaka Samhita's ascribed author, along with the somewhat later Sushruta Samhita, is one of the two main sources for ayurveda, a traditional school of Indian medicine. 




Charaka was the royal physician of the city of Takshashila in modern-day Pakistan, according to legend.
