The study aimed antibacterial activity and antifungal activity of flower extract of Murraya paniculata with use of agar diffusion method. There are many phytoconstituents are present in flowers of Murraya paniculata like Alkaloids, flavonoids, Cardiac glycoside, Tannins and others are identified from flower extract. There are different concentrations of extract are used i.e. 10%, 25%, 50% with two bacteria Gram positive (Bacillus curves) and Gram negative (Klebsiella pneumonia). The zone of inhibition is determined in unit of cm and mm. The same concentration are used for antifungal activity on Trichophyton rubrum.
