The tag historic=wayside_shrine is used to map a shrine showing a religious depiction, usually placed by a road or pathway.

This tag is also used to mark shrines created in modern times (not just "historic" ones).

How to map

Tag a node node or draw the area area and add historic=wayside_shrine

All of these additional tags are optional:

If possible one may map this object as an area and use building=shrine.

A shrine where religious services are conducted is also an amenity=place_of_worship and that tag also should be added. Note that only some shrines qualify for that.

Tag history

historic=wayside_shrine, historic=wayside_cross were intended for tagging old shrines and old crosses. But introducing them was done without proposing a tagging scheme for modern crosses and modern shrines. As result tags changed meaning and are used for any shrine and any cross. Including ones that are neither historic nor wayside.
