Hi Pradeep, this is an amazing list that will be of useful reference. I'm
sure a lot of the items on the list have been mapped out, especially in
Hampi and Mahabalipuram. I'm not sure what is the best way of ezporting the
coordinates to wikipedia though.

With the available tools it looks like too much of a manual effort. How was
this done for other countries participating in wiki loves monuments? Did
they use openstreetmap in some way?
