Using this tag is discouraged, use historic=wayside_shrine or sometimes amenity=place_of_worship + religion=christian instead. Edit or translate this description.

The tag historic=wayside_chapel was introduced by mistake to map a small place of worship or shrine alongside a road.

The tag historic=wayside_shrine should be used instead in most cases, with religion=*

For a small Christian place of worship, use amenity=place of worship + religion=christian

In case you can enter the building, see building=chapel, if you normally can't enter the building (e.g. the scene is intended to be viewed from outside), see building=shrine.
