Shankha, also spelled and pronounced as Shankh and Sankha, is a ritual object consisting of a conch shell, a kind of shell of a large sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk from the Indian Ocean. The species has the the scientific name Turbinella pyrum within the family Turbinellidae.

In Hinduism the Shankha is a sacred emblem of the Hindu preserver god Vishnu. The shankha is still used as a trumpet in Hindu ritual, and was used as a war trumpet in the past. The Shankha is praised in Hindu scriptures as a giver of fame, longevity and prosperity, the cleanser of sin and the abode of Lakshmi - the goddess of wealth and consort of Vishnu.
