Semi-protected edit request on 23 October 2016[edit]

Swap the name "Adam's Peek" To "Sri Pada" because this is in Sri Lanka but not in English speaking country. Use "Adam's peek" as (also known as "Adam's peek").

Not done: This is, however, the English language Wikipedia and WP:COMMONNAME dictates that we should use the name most commonly used by reliable sources in that language. Favonian (talk) 14:24, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello Google[edit]

This location which is named as " Adams Peak " has to be changed to " Sri Padhaya ". Because it is wrong to be called " Sri Padhaya " as " Adams Peak. " " Adams Peak " is a term used by British during the colonial era to identify " Sri Padhaya " for their simplicity. So we request Google to correct this mistake otherwise it would be a false teaching for the next generations as well. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 112.134.39.189 (talk) 15:28, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Change the main name of this mountain to Sri Padaya and add adams peak as a other name. Sri padaya is located on Sri lanka so its need a sinhala name and as well as the real name of this mountain is Sri padaya. So please change it. Kushenthimira (talk) 17:07, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. KGirlTrucker81 huh? what I'm been doing 17:14, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done and won't be done - as repeatedly explained above/in the archives WP:COMMONNAME dictates that we use the name most commonly used by reliable sources in English. - Arjayay (talk) 17:17, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Buddhisme value of Sri Pada[edit]

Buddha has been visited Sri Pada. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.39.34.19 (talk) 14:17, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

The article already states that this is in "the Deepawamsa, the earliest Pali chronicle, (4th century), and also in the 5th century chronicle Mahawamsa, where it is stated that the Buddha visited the mountain peak." - Arjayay (talk) 14:24, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
