Altans are a class of molecular graphs introduced recently. These graphs are attractive to many chemists and mathematicians. A topological index is a numerical invariant calculated for a description of molecular graphs. In this paper, we compute a few topological indices of Altans such as Wiener index, second Zagreb index, atom-bond connectivity (ABC) index, 〖ABC〗_4 index, etc.
