The Śāradā, or Sharada, script ( ) is an abugida writing system of the Brahmic family of scripts, developed from ca. the 8th century. The Gurmukhī script was developed from Śāradā. Originally more widespread, its use became later restricted to Kashmirmarker, and it is now rarely used except by the Kashmiri Pandit community for ceremonial purposes. Śāradā is another name for Saraswati, the goddess of learning.

The Śāradā script was accepted for encoding in the Unicode standard.
