Written Malayalam

Malayalam was first written with the Vatteluttu alphabet (vttttelllutt Vatteluttu), which means ’round writing’ and developed from the Brahmi script. The oldest known writing in Malayalam is known as the Edakal-5 inscription, is in the Vatteluttu alphabet, and dates from late 4th century or the early 5th century AD [more details].

In the 8th to 9th centuries, a modified Grantha alphabet was introduced to the southwest Indian region. It was used to write the Malayalam (and Tulu) languages. It is believed that the Malayalam alphabet was systemized by the 13th century. Over the centuries, the alphabet underwent several changes. By the middle of 19th century, the Malayalam alphabet was in its current form.
