Bhujimol (भुजिमोल / भुजिंमोल) Bhujimol

The Bhujimol script is an ancient version of the Nepal or Newa script that was used to write Sanskrit and Newar in Nepal. The earliest known writing in the Bhujimol script is an inscription on a brick found in 2003 in Chabahil, an old part of Kathmandu, and possibly dating from the 3rd century BC. The inscription is also in the Brahmi script.

Bhujimol is also known as Bhujinmol or literally "fly-headed", from the Newar / Nepal Bhasa words bhujin (housefly) and mol (head). The "head" is the horizontal line above each letter, and Bhujimol refers to their rounded shapes.
