A huge church built as a glass high heel has been created in eastern Taiwan.

The shoe has been created entirely from blue tinted glass and measures around 55 feet tall and 36 feet wide.

It took two months to construct and will open next month before the Lunar New Year on 8th February.

Zheng Rongfeng, spokesperson for the Southwest Coast National Scenic Area, told, that the church could attract more female worshippers and will have a total of 100 'female-oriented features'.

He thought installing "chairs for lovers, maple leaves, biscuits and cakes," might help encourage a more diverse congregation at Ocean View Park in Budai town.
