This is a handwritten Quran from Indian region. Texts are written in Naskh script within double red-line & blue-line frame. The first 2 pages are beautifully gold gilded & illuminated. Covers were repaired with a flap. Very thich manuscript with over 1000 follios. Some pages were decorated with gold medallions in margin. It's undated but from the design & illumination I would safely estimate it was written between 18th-19th century.
