South Asian Manuscripts

Here you can see online reproductions of almost 400 palm leaf manuscripts from the Society’s South Asian manuscript collections. This includes manuscripts originating from across South Asia in Sanskrit, Pali, Burmese, Tamil, Sinhalese, and more, including manuscripts from the collections of C.M. Whish, James Tod, Brian Houghton Hodgson, and Richard Morris. With thanks to the Internet Archive and Kahle/Austin Foundation for supporting the digitization.
