The only OSM object decribing the place you mentioned seems to be the boundary relation 341275 .

So it seems there is no single node (point) with place=xxx for that village. (verified via by zooming to that area, choosing wizard modus and do a query for place=* )

Either there has never been an node for that place, or a node with that information has been deleted.

The easiest way would be do create a new node and add all tags from other villages around, and adjust them to that place.

Ok, I'll do that

But, Is there any way to look for nodes deleted on a region?

Looking at relation history (, there was indeed a place node deleted a couple years ago (, it can be restored if needed.

Sometimes a node can cause problem when doing a search for a street. the street may get linked to the nearest town node, which may be incorrect. Some consider a town polygon only is best. see
