Something is very wrong with the measurements. This is GA?????[edit]

The Sharma citation has a serious error. It says that the garden has an area of 2,952 sq ft, i.e., not much bigger than my little urban garden. The Batra reference states "The tomb is set in the middle of a large walled square garden, each side measuring around 280 metres.", so the external area is about 78,400 square metres, over 843,890 square feet, or about 285 times the size here in wikipedia. When the article states that this is a scaled-down type of architecture, a reader could become very confused. It is clear from the images, that this is not the tiny garden with a tomb somehow squeezed into it that Sharma claims it is. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 14:17, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

I have removed that source entirely from the article, and used the Batra reference for the two dimensions. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 15:38, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
