10 Good looking Hindi Unicode fonts.

Many Hindi and Devanagari text websites generally have a message in corner saying that
"If you are unable to view text in Hindi or Devanagari then download Hindi Unicode font from here."
Devanagari Unicode fonts are essential to view Hindi text contents on websites. Although all latest operating systems comes with Unicode already installed in it. We use it as mangal font for Hindi or Devanagari fonts. Mangal font is not the only way to see our Hindi text data. There are more Unicode fonts that can be used as alternative of mangal font. By default normally we get our Hindi texts in notepad in mangal font. We can give a new look to Hindi texts by installing new Hindi Unicode fonts. Unicode fonts have much more glyphs in comparison of other common fonts we use.

Whenever we open some Hindi websites like newspaper or other books websites we notice that the same Hindi font is used for all of them,  a same common pattern for those. But sometimes a few websites use new different and beautiful Unicode fonts for their texts breaking that pattern.

I've collected some different Devanagari Unicode fonts in an order. Some of these are preinstalled in Windows 8, 7 and xp. But still some fonts like Surekh are also very useful while using as a Unicode font. Each font is given with its donwload link.
