The inventory is a part of the Integrated Conservation Plan of Champaner-Pavagadh to help frame future policies for the conservation action plan.
The inventory documents 114 structures w.r.t.surrounding landscape, topography, activity, plan, photographs, protection status, historical or mythological associations, description of architectural features, condition, and architectural modifications. They are classified based on identification types such as archaeological excavation, archaeological site, architectural fragments and ruins, structures above ground, structures below ground, water bodies. Each building type belongs to typologies distinguishable by its original function i.e., military structures, residential structures, civic structures, religious structures, water structures, residential precincts, and commercial precincts.
Each section commences with the map showing location of all the structures representing that typology. The first three digits of the building number represented the typology and the following digits represented the identification number. The structures that lie on the top of Pavagadh Hill were numbered first and as one descended the numbers kept increasing.E.g., DRZ01 represented the structure of typology Darwaza and lay at the topmost part of the city.
