The whole plant was traditionally used in Ayurveda system of medicine for the treatment of urinary diseases, colitis, piles, hemorrhoids, fistula and sinus. The present work aimed at phytochemical screening, GC-MS study and anti bacterial activity of the secondary metabolites like alkaloids, trepenoids, flavonoids, phenolic compounds and tannins. The phytochemical screening of the ethanolic extract was carried out applying the standard methods and tests. It shows the presence of various metabolites like tannins, flavonoids, saponnins, steroids, terpenoids, carbohydrates, quinones, phenolic compounds and glycosides. GC-MS study has shown the existence of 20 compounds in the ethanolic extract. The extract inhibits the growth of gram positive and negative bacterial species.
