Nature has provide a medicinal agents since, for thousands of years and a impressive number of modern medicines. The medicines are isolated from natural sources; several supported their use in ancient medication. Higher plants, as sources of medicinal compounds, have continuing to play a dominant role in the upkeep of human health since ancient times. Over five hundredth of all trendy clinical medicine area units of natural product origin and play an necessary role in drug development programs in the pharmaceutical industry. Bauhinia racemosa Lam. are the plant which is broadly distributed in tropical climate regions. Bauhinia species are flowering trees found in Caesalpiniaceae family. The root and stem bark fibers which possesses curative properties. Ethnopharmacologically, varied elements of the plant starting from the bark of the plant to the gum obtained has been used in diseases like, Diarrhea, dysentery, fever etc. B. racemosa have the different photochemical constituents like flavonoids, glycosides, phenols, saponins, and tannins. several pharmacological actions of the plant already proved, that embrace anti-microbial, anthelmintic, antitumor activity. This review focus on the pharmacological actions and phytoconstituets of Bauhinia racemosa.
