INDIGENOUS SCRIPTS OF JAMMU & KASHMIR:
Devanagari, Dogra Akkhar, Sharada, Gurmukhi

A folio from a Sanskrit manuscript at Raghunath temple Library with all these scripts

The text reads:
ॐ शरणागत दीनार्त परित्राण परायणा
तेजःस्वरूपा परमा तदधिष्टा त्रिदेवता

@KhajuriaManu @karankraina @VoiceofDogras @shardapeetham @sp_sharma07 @Prof_Hariom @DimpleAtra @SaveSabrimala @CoreSharada @maidros78 Notice the Jammu Punjab style of Devanagari in the text.
One can appreciate the pecuilar Om variant, and variants of letters like ण & त्र

The Om Variant was also prevalent in Kashmir. Here is an image of Sharada temple of Kashmir

@KhajuriaManu @karankraina @VoiceofDogras @shardapeetham @sp_sharma07 @Prof_Hariom @DimpleAtra @SaveSabrimala @CoreSharada @maidros78 @TrueIndologyliv The writer of this manuscript is probably a person named Birbal (Virbal).

This is evident from the name written at the end of folio. He prefers to write his name in Dogra Script.

Probably because Dogra Akkhar was official script of Entire JK state.
