Taiwan built crystal high heels Church

A 16m-high glass church in the shape of a high-heeled shoe has been built in Taiwan, apparently in a bid to attract more women.

A huge glass... what?
Yes, you read that right: a glass church, shaped just like a vast high-heeled shoe as if lost by a titan Cinderella while racing through Chaiyi.
Made out of over 320 tinted glass panels, the shiny blue building measures more than 10m wide and cost about T$23m.
It's set to open its doors to the public on 8 February, just in time for 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 high heel is intended to honour her memory.
