The main entrance of a building or enclosed area, where the shoppers or clients go inside. Some building types like shopping mall have often more than one main entrance.

Only the fact that there are also side entrances justifies entrance=main not yet. It should be a publicly accessible building (like access=yes). Use a different value in this case: yes, home, service, staircase etc.

How to map

Add a node node at the building outline and tag it with entrance=main.

The house number should be added at another node in the building or at the building itself.
