The Sharda or Śāradā alphabet developed from the Brahmi script during the second half of the 8th century AD. The earliest known inscription in the Sharda alphabet dates from 774 AD and was discovered in a village called Hund in the west of Pakistan.
Today only a small group of Brahmins continue to use the Sharda alphabet for writing and calculating astrological and ritual formulations.
