Sanskrit Garden of Paradigms — Declension Tables
Nominal and Verb Declensions for Students

Sanskrit Declensions, Conjugations, Endings

Garden consists of every possible combination of declensions/conjugations for nouns and verbs (covering Classic and Vedic Sanskrit). Includes instant sandhi lookup charts. Word parts and sandhi are colorized for legibility. 

The Garden was made to be the only reference guide, assuming it's supplemented by the Fancy Grammar Table.

Inspired by “Little Red Book” by Prof. McComas Taylor, my first Sanskrit teacher.
