Smaller than a mausoleum, shrines are small constructions that can be built outside, inside some buildings, and within graveyards. They cannot have locks. They are essentially like mausoleums, but are constructions instead of buildings and are not limited to graveyards. For those wishing to make a crypt (an underground vault for the dead) or perhaps a replication of catacombs, this is one way to do it.
While sometimes used to memorialize the dead, there is no limit on their usage, which may also include devotion to some goddess or god.

A small stone shrine can be destroyed using a sledgehammer or bronze sledgehammer, pickaxe or bronze pickaxe, and crowbar.
