smallest enclave/exclave?

Also...and I'm not sure this requires a new tag or not, but I notice the comment on the Pagarirai (sorry) topic asserting that it had been the smallest en/exclave in the world. Surely some of the pieces making up the Baarle Hertog are smaller. This is unscientific of me, but on the Wikopedia site, look at the photo of H22-- it doesn't appear more to be more than a fraction of a hectare in size
Thanks, Dave in Oregon

Re: smallest enclave/exclave?

Upan Chowki Bhaini (53 m²) is the smallest of all.

Re: smallest enclave/exclave?

dave mannix, I am pretty sure that this comment must have been an accident. I have not been able to find it if it was on my pages.

Any temporary piece of land, even as small as 1 m², which might appear in the Rio Parana may be called a separate true enclave, although a temporary one. Therefore it is very difficult to be completely certain which is the very smallest one. At least when it comes to the river enclaves.

I guess the Cooch Behar guess is right, although we are not 100% sure which of these true enclaves still are alive. We have 198 enclaves on our list, while Indian-Bangladeshi authorities quote only 162.
