    Introduction: The cranial index (CI) of the dry South Indian skulls can be used to segregate them geographically. Thus, the aim of the study is to determine and analyze the geographical variation in dry South Indian skulls using CI. Materials and Methods: A total of 50 skulls are taken from the Department of Anatomy and were been evaluated which are from unknown sex. The method of calculation is done by taking the length of the skull, breadth of the skull, and the CI of the skull which are taken with Vernier caliper and calculated. Results: According to data observed on skull, they are classified based on the CI value. The dolichocranic skulls are skulls with CI up to 74.9 or below 75.0. The mesocranic skulls are skulls with CI between 75.0 and 79.9. The brachycranic skulls are the skulls with CI between 80.0 and 84.9. Conclusion: The conclusion of the study is that most of the skulls of the South Indian population were under the dolichocranic skulls.
