Ayurveda is the science of healthy life. In Aurvedic texts there are brief description of Human body and its anatomical structures. In that order acharya shushrut has described the Sira in sharir sthana chapter seven. Charak has defined the Sira as Sarnat sira in Sutra sthan chapter thirty. Shushrut has mentioned four types of Sira-Aruna, Neela, Sweta, Lohita. These are relevant respectively with the Dosha Vatta, Pitta, Kapha Rrakta. We can regard “Neela sira” as the veins which collect impure blood from all over the body towards the Heart. The blood flow in these Sira by slow velocity is called Saran kriya. These Sira are basically of two types - one of them can be punctured for curing the disease is called Vedhya siras, 602 in number. Another type of Siras are Avedhya siras, 98 in number, which are strictly prohibited for puncturing, if by mistake or by stupidity of the Chikitsak these are punctured the it leads to harmful results. There are several examples of disease those are cured by that Venupucture or Sira Vedhan process like Gradharasi, Vishvachi, Unmad, Apasmar etc. In this paper Avedhya Sira are very well discussed W.S.R to the anatomical structures involved in modern medical science. These are divided in three regions Shakhagat-16, Kosthgat-32, and Urdhavjatrugat-50.
