A huge glass… what?

A church shaped like a giant version of Cinderella’s fabled glass slipper has been built in Taiwan to attract female visitors. Over 320 tinted glass panels were used to build the 16-metre tall high-heeled shoe, which was constructed by the local government of Taiwan’s Southwest Coast National Scenic Area. It took two months to build this church at a cost of $686,000.

Although it is not clear what is inside the building, a stage is located in the opening of the shoe, about halfway up the structure. The design of the slipper was inspired by the story of a local woman whose wedding was canceled after her legs were amputated and lived out her days in a church.

Pan Tsuei-ping, the administration’s recreation section manager said that the church will not be used for regular services, but pre-wedding photo shoots and wedding ceremonies.

The building will open to the public on  February 8.
