Aqueous & alcoholic extracts of dried stem bark of Bauhinia racemosa Lam. @ 100, 200mg/kg body weight were used in the present study. The study was conducted as per the “Tail Immersion Method” described by Ghosh M.N., (1984.) Aqueous extract of Bauhinia racemosa Lam stem bark @ 200mg/kg body weight produced significant analgesic activity whereas 100mg/kg dose did not produce significant results when compared with control. (P<0.01) The result of analgesic activity of alcoholic extract produced significant results at both the doses (P<0.01). The findings indicated the analgesic activity of the stem bark of the plant.
