The Kalinga script is one of many descendants of the ancient Pali script used in what is now modern-day regions of Odisha. It was primarily used to write Odia and Telugu in north Andhra Pradesh, in the ancient state of Kalinga. It is visually very similar to Pali.[1]

By the 12th century, this script had essentially become the current Odia script.
