South Asian Manuscripts

Here you can see online reproductions of over 400 manuscripts from the Society’s South Asian manuscript collections, many of which are on palm leaf. 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, Kahle/Austin Foundation, and Byoma Kusuma Buddhadharma Sangha for supporting the digitization.
