Lepcha (Róng) script   Lepcha (Róng-Ríng)


According to Lepcha tradition, the Lepcha script was invented by the Lepcha scholar Thikúng Men Salóng sometime during the 17th century. The inventor of the script was probably inspired by Buddhist missionaries. Another theory is that the script developed during the early years of the 18th century.

Today the Lepcha script is used in newspapers, magazines, textbooks, collections of poetry, prose and plays.
