It looks like Adanson House Spider, Hasarius adansoni. From the eyes, it's definitely a salticid, and the reported 8mm size for females is close to the 1cm you estimated for yours. Here's an image from spiderid.com with similar markings:

  • $\begingroup$ Pattern of white strips and dots is different in both images. It is definitely Jumping Spider (salticid), but not Hasarius adansoni. $\endgroup$ – Sisyphus Jul 11 at 8:04

This is a male Carrhotus sannio (the females are brown/grey). The white dorsal stripe on the cephalothorax is right beneath the outside eye; the upside-down v-marks on the back of the abdomen point to two white lines (sometimes broken) which run parallel to the length.
