Chathura was developed initially as an ASCII font in 2009 in the Ezi Fonts collection, which consists 42 Telugu ASCII fonts. In 2015 Chathura was developed into a Unicode font family with support for Telugu and Latin. The design is useful for invitations, headings, in print and on the web. Each letter has rectangular forms and a uniform stroke thickness.

The Telugu component was designed by Appaji Ambarisha Darbha. The Latin component was added from Rajdhani, a Latin and Devanagari font family developed by Shiva Nalleperumal at Indian Type Foundry.

The Chathura project is led by Appaji Ambarisha Darbha, a type designer based in Hyderabad, India. To contribute, see
