Medicinal plants were the strong source of therapeutic molecules to heal various diseases in the globe. The amount of heavy metals in the plants was examined to establish the likely menace of their effects to the animals and human beings who eat them as such or their derived products. In the present work, the trace metals level and antimicrobial activities were estimated in medicinal plant of Nyctanthes arbors. The cadmium concentration was more eminent in the test sample than other metals and is also crossing the stock points. In antimicrobial activity, the test sample was most effective against Micrococcus luteus NCIM 2871 while smaller effect was noticed from Microsporum canis MTCC 3270. All the microbial strains depict higher sensitivity to the higher concentration (40 μl) for the plant sample when compared to the positive control except Shigella flexneri MTCC 1457 and Micrococcus luteus NCIM 2871.
