Where is India?

India is a country in South Asia.

Can you find India on the map to the right? (Hint: Look for a country that is almost diamond-shaped)

A closer view of India shows its borders as well as the many islands surrounding it. It is bordered to the north by Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and China. The Indian Ocean surrounds the other three sides of the country.

India is often called the "subcontinent" because it covers such a major part of the Asian continent.
