    Introduction: The morphology of the bone provides several anatomical inputs and its variation provides significant points during orthopedic surgeries and also in fabrication of tarsal bone prosthesis. The calcaneum is the biggest of tarsal bone unpredictably cuboidal with its long pivot slanted distally. The aim of the study is to assess the type of facet on the talus and calcaneum, as well as the overall morphology and morphometry of the talus and calcaneum. Materials and Methods: A total of 30 calcaneal bones are gathered from the Department of Anatomy, Saveetha Dental College, Chennai, and are utilized for this study. Digital Vernier caliper is utilized for morphometric investigation. The length, breadth, and width of talar articular facets in connection to talocalcaneal articulation are analyzed. Results: The bones were grown-up calcanei of both genders. The calcanei were finished in all viewpoints to give the right estimations. The calcanei were non-neurotic. Conclusion: From the study, it was observed that there is a high occurrence of the separate type of a talar articular facet which is common in all populations.
