Learn Sanskrit Letters (वर्णाः)
To Boost Your Sanskrit Language Skills.

Sanskrit is written in the देवनागरी (Devanāgarī) script.  In Sanskrit, Letters are known as वर्णाः (varṇāḥ). These are the letters of the Sanskrit alphabet. In Sanskrit, there are no capital or small letters.

There are two main types of letters in Sanskrit- the स्वराः  (Svarāḥ) which are the 13 basic vowels and the व्यञ्जनानि (Vyañjanāni) which are the 33 basic consonants.

A syllable in Sanskrit is the mixture of one vowel and one or more consonants. Also, there are some varṇās which come after a vowel and cannot be pronounced by themselves. These are known as the अयोगवाहाः (ayogavāhāḥ).
