Edit: The last quiz in the series to get a facelift! Thank you everyone for playing this quiz, and finally Sri Lanka is added to the map :)

This is one of the quiz, extremely needed. I thank you a lot for making this quiz.

Can you please give us the source of the quiz ?

Tried this quiz again and this time nominated it. Hope it gets featured someday which is actually very unlikely.

Btw, would you accept some type-ins like Vizag and Visakhapatnam for Vishakhapatnam and Gurgaon for Gurugram

Cheers! I've gone and added the types-ins. I don't expect this one to get featured either, but one can hope!

For some reason, the JetPunk Indian states map doesn't include Sri Lanka. Maybe that will change when the map is updated for Jammu and Kashmir/Ladakh.

Thank you! I would like to see the official map get updated too, especially now that post-2019 Indian state maps are more common than ever. Knowing India, when the map finally gets updated two or three new states will have been created!

How did you make the map though? I want to make a detailed map of the Indian Subcontinent with the bordering countries in it but can't seem to figure out how to do it.

The map is simply an official Jetpunk map from the Indian States quiz. I added Ladakh in 2019, and it wasn't too precise considering that reference maps for what the territory looked like were scarce and always included all territory claimed by India in that region. However, I have double-checked the borders a couple times since and I believe it to be accurate. Sri Lanka is a recent addition, and I simply took the path from Jetpunk's Asia map (along with the India path temporarily, so that I could measure the placement correctly). Finally I made surrounding countries a tad darker (#CCCCCC) and drew a border on the outside of the map.

Both the official Jetpunk Asia and Indian States maps have a great deal of detail, and so I haven't an excuse to make my own maps yet. If you decide to make your own map it would be neat to see, however, and you are always welcome to use this map here too!

Great quiz! One correction - on the map, Bhiwandi appears to be located close to Delhi. Bhiwandi is in fact a suburb of Mumbai in the state of Maharashtra

Thank you! I will have to fix that, when I originally typed Bhiwandi into Google Maps to see where it was, it took me to the city of Bhiwandi, Haryana :(

So India has around 60 cities that are bigger than the biggest city I've ever been to (that's 2nd biggest in my country of almost 40 million people). :D

It is crazy, and these numbers have room to grow as India continues to develop and urbanise! I love the idea of going to a city like Meerut, a place that rivals the likes of the biggest cities in Canada, yet a place almost no one here has heard of :)

Surat comes after Chennai in the answers, but it says it has a higher population.
