Sudarshan Churna (SC) is very potent Ayurvedic medicine; composed of 42 medicinal plants, which is used traditionally in treatment of malaria, viral fever, and bacterial infection. The Present study was designated to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of aqueous extract of Sudarshan Churna (ASC) using the paper disc diffusion method. The ASC was found active against the gram-negative bacteria K. pneumoniae, E. coli, and gram-positive bacteria S. aureus, P. vulgris and found less effective against gram-positive bacteria S. epidermidis and B. subtilis. The ASC shows significantly less effect against C. Albicans.
