Indian State Capitals: Ordered from North to South

Dashamlav has arranged the order of Indian state capitals from North to South

The latitudinal extent of Indian mainland is from 8°4’N in Kanyakumari to 37°6’N in Kashmir. We often do not go beyond this fact as far as the geographical latitudes are concerned. However, if one digs deeper into the Indian political map, an interesting order of state capitals could be observed from North to South. This order reflects that the overall latitudinal extent of state from North to South is very different from order of geographical latitude of the Indian state capitals. For example, Karnataka state lies north to Tamil Nadu. However, Bengaluru which is the state capital of Karnataka lies south to Chennai which is the state capital of Tamil Nadu.
