Capitals of India

Thinking about Delhi prompted me to write this post. Delhi has not been the only capital of India. Some of the ones I could think of are:
Pataliputra (Patna) of Ashoka
Delhi of lot of rulers
Daulatabad of Muhammed bin Tughlaq
Agra
(Fatehpur Sikri) of Akbar
Calcutta of East India Company and Britishers till 1912
Shimla, Summer Capital of East India Company and Britishers till 1912
New Delhi of Britishers after 1912 and of Republic of India
