Is it on the North-South axis, the East-West axis or some other orientation?

I've usually observed wild Indian Bees (Apis cerana) orient their hives in an East-West direction. The entrances are usually oriented towards the Sun.

This is purely from my own observation (in South India) and not from any research.
