The tag building=wayside_shrine is used to map a very small building which shows a religious depiction as a wayside shrine, if it has a roof and is large enough for at least one person to enter (these are the usual criteria for a building).
This tag can also be used to mark wayside shrines created in modern times – not just “historic” ones. There is also tag historic=wayside_shrine and some advocate that it should be added only to historic ones, but that tags is extremely widely used for all (see Counterintuitive keys and values).
- For larger (but still small) christian buildings, that can be entered by one or more people, consider using the tag building=chapel.
- For non-christian buildings of this kind use the tag building=shrine.
