If The Shoe Fits !
Imagine Cinderella’s glass slipper scaled to about 100 times its original size and dropped on the coast of Taiwan.
That’s the new church in Ocean View Park in Budai township.
Looking like it was plucked from a distorted fairy tale, the glittering, shoe-shaped building is made up of about 320 tinted glass panels and stands 55 feet tall by 36 feet wide. It was reportedly constructed by the Southwest Coast National Scenic Area in an effort to attract female worshippers and tourists to the site.
And just in case a giant high heel with a tragic back story isn’t enough to lure women to the new church, another local government official said the interior of the church, too, will cater to women’s apparently delicate inclinations.
