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 or draw the area and add historic=wayside_shrine
Note: If the shrine has a roof and is large enough for a person to enter, the building can be mapped and tagged with building=* (e.g. building=chapel, building=shrine, or building=wayside_shrine).
- name=* if it has a name
- religion=* (e.g. religion=christian, religion=shinto, religion=hindu)
- denomination=* - (e.g. denomination=roman_catholic, denomination=russian_orthodox, denomination=tibetan)
All of these additional tags are optional:
- amenity=place_of_worship if it is a place of worship
- tourism=attraction if it is a tourist attraction
- ruins=yes if it's a ruin
- start_date=* erection/sacrification date
- support=* mounted on pedestal/tree/ground/etc.
If possible one may map this object as an area and use additionally building=wayside_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.

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.

- man_made=cross modern cross
- building=shrine, building=wayside_shrine
