WEB DESK: A 55 foot glass church in the shape of a high-heeled shoe has been constructed in Taiwan in a bid to attract more women, BBC reported.
The church has been made out of over 320 tinted glass panels. The shiny blue building measures more than 10m (36ft) wide and cost about T$23m (US$686,000 £477,000).
The church will be open to public on February 8, in time for the Chinese new year.
The shoe was inspired by a local story. According to officials in the 1960s, a 24-year-old girl surnamed Wang from the impoverished region suffered from Blackfoot disease. Both of her legs had to be amputated, leading to the cancellation of her wedding. She remained unmarried and spent the rest of her life at a church.
The shoe is intended to honour her memory.
The church will not just be used for the weekly service, but also pre-wedding photo shoots for couples.
