The leaves of Murraya koenigii (L) Spreng (Rutaceae) are reported to have great medicinal value such as antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifeedant etc. Pharmacognostic evaluation including examinations of morphological and microscopic characters, determination of leaf content, ash value, powder analysis and extractive values were carried out. Phytochemical screenings including qualitative chemical examinations were performed. The leaf had reticulate venation and dentate margin with asymmetrical base. The stomata were distributed on both the sides. Phytochemicals such as carbohydrates, alkaloids, sterols, tannins, volatile oils, saponins, anthroquinone glycosides and flavanoids are reported. Phytoconstituents in various extracts gives us clue for further investigation.
