Apparent spelling errors in the list[edit]

I see that this list is taken ad verbatim from ASI site, but it seems that there are quite a few apparent spelling errors. For example, N-MH-A40 to A45 show the place name Bellichpur (Achalpur). It apparently is Ellichpur, because there is no place named Bellichpur and Ellichpur is ancient name of Achalpur. Again, I have visited Nagardhan fort in Nagpur district, which is a archeological site as per the noticeboard there. It is apparently Dpnagartal N-MH-A139 in this list. I would suggest getting a supporting list if possible to check such errors and avoid confusion. Shivashree (talk) 15:37, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi Shivashree,
Feel free to fix this kind of errors! After all, it is a wiki. As long as you don't add buildings to it because you happen to think they are important (that is a matter of definition). Spelling mistakes, unclear descriptions etc should definitely be improved upon. effeietsanders 21:33, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
I've seen on more occasions that Nagardhan is considered to be the same as Dpnagartal but I don't seem to find support for that at this point in the official ASI lists. They can of course make mistakes... However, other sources do suggest (such as this Times of India article) that the Nagardhan fort is actually protected by State law, and not by national law. This also confirms the status in the State protected list of Maharashtra, which mentions Nagadhar at number 112. Might it be that it is still another fort we're talking about? Probably still misspelled, but to what... effeietsanders 10:47, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! I noticed it later that it is a state-protected monument. I have been to that place and the noticeboard there (in Marathi) notes that it is maintained by the Archaeology Department of the State Government (and not national). So Dpnagartal is certainly not Nagardhan. Shivashree (talk) 02:15, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
