Endophytic microorganisms are to be found in virtually every plant on earth. These organisms reside in the living tissues of the host plant and do so in a variety of relationships, ranging from symbiotic to slightly pathogenic. The bacterial isolates that showed broad spectrum activity on all the five test organisms were selected for further characterization. Morphological characteristics; the colony shape, color, elevation, texture and the bacteria Gram type were observed. Biochemical activities of microorganisms were studied for the purpose of identification as well as classification. The endophytes of medicinal plants participate in biochemical pathways and produce novel bioactive compounds. (Strobel and Daisy, 2003). The aim of the study was to identify the various morphological characterization of endophytic bacteria from leaves of Tamarindus indica. The preliminary identification of the endophytic bacterial isolates was done based on various morphological features of isolated endophytic bacteria from leaves of Tamarindus indica.
