In Charaka Sharira it is mentioned that the elaboration of Sharira (body) and its parts are studied properly to know more about human anatomy. Each individual has a different body type as compared to other individuals. As we know how Prakriti describes special characteristic of an individual like Vataja Prakriti- dry body, Pitaja Prakriti – oily body and Raktvardhaka Tvaka, Kaphja Prakriti – full of strength and soft and smooth body. The structure of body reveals much about the diagnosis in case of a disease and patient’s history as said in Samhita about Dashvidha Pariksha. It accomplishes structural view as Darshana Pariksha. In the same manner if physical health shows health status, then mental health and mind level are also revealed by Akriti or physical appearance of an individual. Through this article, I have made an attempt to evaluate any connection that links Agarkhumbha / frontal eminence with individual’s IQ level. As an old famous proverb says “You don’t see the brain on one’s forehead’ (Chinese proverb). But we can judge the intelligence the individual possesses by seeing his frontal eminence.
