Sanskrit Fonts

Sanskrit Fonts

Download freeware sanskrit fonts here! These truetype fonts are designed with extra characters to allow the use of diacritic marks (dots and bars) above and below the letters. They are used extensively in vaisnava/vedic literature.

E.g. Hare Krsna Hare Krsna

A number of fonts have been removed from this site since it was brought to my attention that the fonts or their names were intellectual property of Linotype.

If you already have sanskrit fonts and are experiencing problems such as squares in place of chacters, try downloading latest versions. All files are zipped, and use Western European character mapping except where stated otherwise

See Specialised Sanscrit Fonts for Eastern European & Postscript versions.
