Floral temple waste consisted of variety of flowers and leaves, out of them yellow flowers of Chrysanthemum morifolium (common name of sewanti) and leaves of Aegle marmelos were choosen for the study. This study deals with the phytochemical screening and thin layer separation of both the plant material of temple waste. Result of phytochemical screening showed the presence of various phytoconstituents including alkaloids, glycoloids, phenols, flavanoids saponins and carbohydrates. The maximum percentage yield and bioactive constituents were found in ethanolic extract of the plant material. Qualitative estimation of phenols and flavanoids was confirmed with the help of thin layer chromatography. The result obtained from present study indicated that floral temple waste also contains bioactive compound and which can be used for medicinal purpose and management of temple floral waste can be done.
