Gurmukhi: Who invented Gurmukhi?

Recommended Posts

"The Gurmukhi script is tightly associated with the Sikh religion, as the words guru-mukhî literally mean "from the mouth of the guru". It was created in the 16th century CE by the second Sikh guru, Guru Angad, to write the Punjabi language. Stylistically, Gurmukhi derives its letter shapes from Landa, but considerable influence from Nagari is evident from the top horizontal bar present in most letters."

I copied this from http://www.ancientscripts.com/gurmukhi.html and if you click on Landa on the link then you can see how the Gurmukhi letters are similar in shape to Landa letters.
