Bauhinia tomentosa is one of the best, versatile and most commonly used house hold remedy for many manifestations. The present study is aimed to investigate the pharmacognostic analysis of the leaves and the phytochemicals present. The leaves were fixed in TBA, sectioned and then stained with toluidine blue. The leaves were dried and extracted with petroleum ether, ethyl acetate, ethanol and water. Phytochemical analysis was done with all four extracts using standard procedures. The pharmacognostical studies revealed the presence of calcium oxalate crystals and different cell components were studied and measured. The extractive yield was found to be high in aqueous and ethanol extracts. Most of the phytochemicals were found to be present in the ethanol extract. Further studies are to be carried out to assay the bioactivity of the phytochemicals and the medicinal values of the various phytochemicals present in Bauhinia tomentosa
