The name[edit]

Most references including scholarly references use Kailasa or Kailasanatha temple, the other forms less commonly. This common majority use of Kailasanatha appears in web searches and google book searches as well (add Ellora to the search term). Kailashnath corresponds to Hindi pronunciation, but this place is deep in Marathi country where it would be either Kailasa natha or Kailasha natha. I suggest that it be moved again to Kailasanatha temple or Kailasa temple. Some refs;

  • UNESCO WHS listing [1] Kailasa, Kailasha
  • George Mitchell, Monuments of India vol. 1 (Kailasa)
  • Maharashtra tourism [2] Kailasa

  • Oppose The websites you have quoted are not worthy to rely on. Why consider them as standard? The possibility is that a non-maharashtrian prepared these reports. "Kailashnath" is normally used by Maharashtrians. "Kailasa natha" is deep south Karnataka/Andhra.
Anonymous editor, have we disagreed on a similar topic with regard to Kannada pronunciation before? You're suggesting that Marathi speakers use Hindi pronunciation. This quote is from the Marathi language article -
Marathi preserves certain Sanskrit patterns of pronunciation, as in the words purṇa and rāma compared to purṇ and rām in Hindi.
In any case I have quoted reliable sources. You haven't given a reason for supposing them 'not worthy to rely on'.

Renaming[edit]

This article (without the disamb) has been moved from a regional form of the name (Kailasanathar temple) to Kailashnath temple, Ellora. Most WP:RS however call it by the name Kailasa temple or Kailasanatha temple. Current references on the page include the UNESCO World Heritage site listing and the Kukke and Rothermund book which call it Kailasa temple. The travel blog reference currently in the article cannot be considered RS, and Templenet uses Kailasanatha. Google book search gives “Kailasa temple, Ellora” by far the highest score – over 3400 against 26 for “Kailashnath temple, Ellora”. (Kailasanatha temple, Ellora has 700+ hits). Hence I've moved the page to Kailasa temple, Ellora. Imc (talk) 11:07, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
