    The miniature churches or shrines next to the roads are memorials for people killed in a car accident, at the same spot where the accident happened. The family of the deceased construct and maintain them . They contain a photo of the deceased, some religious objects and a lit candle or lamp.

    Little, little church

    We saw quite often such little churches at the wayside. They all look different – and there are much more beautiful ones than the one on my photo…
