Plants used in traditional medicines, contain a vast array of substances that can be used to treat chronic and infectious diseases. The antibacterial activities of extracts of stem and leaves of Tinospora cordifolia were investigated to evaluate its medicinal potential. The extracts were screened against Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Stapylococcus aureus by disc diffusion method. The results showed that methanol extracts of T. cordifolia was active on all the strains of pathogens. The result of this study validates the use of methanol extract of this species in ethnomedicine and could provide a lead in the isolation of antibacterial agents from methanol extract of T. cordifolia..
