In this paper, Rectangular Microstrip Patch Antenna (RMPA) along with metamaterial which has Square Split Ring Resonator (SSRR) with Horizontal Rectangular Strip (HRS) structure is proposed. Which has been super-imposed on RMPA at height of 3.2mm from its ground plane. The RMPA with proposed metamaterial structure is designed to resonate at 2.097GHz frequency. This paper is mainly focused on increasing the potential parameters of microstrip patch antenna. The simulation results showed that the impedance bandwidth of RMPA with proposed metamaterial structure is improved by 17MHz to 36.2MHz significantly the return loss reduced by -10.425db to -28.15db and increased the bandwidth and directivity of the antenna.
