The present study deals with the antibacterial activity of Anisomeles malabarica.Sequential extraction was carried out by using solvent such as ethanol, methanol, petroleum ether and aqueous extract from the leaf and boiled leaf of plant were investigated for preliminary antibacterial property against some pathogenic bacteria. In polar studies the maximum zone of inhibition were found in Staphylococcus aureus. In non-polar studies the maximum zone of inhibition were found in Pseudomonas aeruginosa. All these findings have confirmed the uses of this plant in a broad spectrum to treat several bacterial infections. The results showed good antibacterial activity and it could play an important role in herbal formulations for the treatment of infectious diseases.
