Shrine On Foot

Shrine On Foot

Taken at the foot of Chang Jia Jie mountain, this little Japanese looking Shrine stand proudly on raised stilts. So, the little Japaneses looking Shrine standing on its feet on the foot of the mountain. The Shrine had been dodged in photoshop to bring up its brightness. I realised that most people will not call this a shrine but a small temple.

As distinguished from a temple, a shrine usually houses a particular relic or cult image, which is the object of worship or veneration, or is constructed on a site which is thought to be particularly holy, as opposed to being placed for the convenience of worshippers.
