The knowledge of arterial supply of the human kidney is of special interest as it is not only having many morphological variations buy also many vascular surgeries are carried out in case of renal artery. This study was based on examination of 15 human donated bodies in the medical colleges by dissection method. We found variations in the form of the number of renal artery supplying the kidney, its level of origin, relation with the renal vein, branching pattern,  presence of an accessory renal artery and its variations. Knowledge of these variations may help to avoid the clinical complications especially during radiological examinations and/or surgical approaches in this region.
