People visit the church in the shape of a high-heeled glass shoe in Chiayi, western Taiwan, July 23, 2016.

The church, costing $7.6 million, was made with 320 pieces of blue glass on a steel frame. It is 17 meters tall, 11 meters wide, 25 meters long, and is certified by Guinness World Records as 'the largest building shaped like a shoe'.

The Southwest Coast National Scenic Area Administration built it as one of four church-themed landmarks to commemorate girls who had their feet amputated during the 1950s due to blackfoot disease and later, could not walk down the red carpet in high heels at their weddings.
