Through a random image search, this nifty Gurmukhi inscription popped up. Interesting to see the width of the A and Sa characters, and the attempts to make vowel signs fit!

It’s located in a place called Surkhani, near the city of Baku, Azerbaijan. I’m not sure of the date of this – A date marked on a nearby Nagrik script inscription apparently indicates 1810. Found on a Parsi Zoroastrian site, Avesta. These images accompany a travel story written by preist and scholar Ervad Shams-Ul-Ulama Dr. Sir Jivanji Jamshedji Modi in 1925.
