There is an increase in demand for microstrip antennas with improved performance for wireless communication applications because of their planar structure, low profile, and light weight, moderate efficiency and ease of integration with active devices. In this paper, general property of rectangular micro-strip patch antenna is explained with metamaterial structure like return loss, bandwidth, directivity and gain. Comparison of return loss, bandwidth & gain of the micro-strip patch antenna at a
