Tamil is one of the world's ancient languages. This paper focuses mainly in particular on OCR for the digitalization and conservation of texts and inscriptions in the Tamil language. A system that does not include obtaining either Standard size and shape or the color difference between background and foreground to recognize Palm Leaf Manuscript and stone inscriptions and obtaining information. A variety of algorithms have been analyzed for OCR texts for Tamils, and ancient letter conversion still has a big challenge to convert ancient Tamils into today's digital text format for Tamils.
