Kalinga script (Dravidi) is one of many descendants of the ancient Brāhmī script used in territory of modern Odishā (Orissa). The Kalinga script was used to write an ancient Dravidic language spoken in Kalinga state. It is derived from Brahmi and visually is very close to that ancient script (and Kadamba script). By the 12th century this script has been abandoned in favor of a Brahmic script which eventually became the Oriya script.
