Hi Suzan,

These are usually indicated using the "religion" tag, so
See the information here:
Usually it goes with "amenity=place_of_worship"

> Greetings,
> Both in Nepal and now in Myanmar we are mapping Buddhist and Hindu shrines, temples, and monasteries. However, there are no tags for these buildings or sites. In Nepal and Myanmar there are stupas as well. Can we get appropriate tags for these buildings added? Also in some Christian and Muslim areas there are monasteries, shrines, and so on. The tagging system includes all the Christian denominations, but nothing for these other religions.

> Temple=Hindu
> Monastery=Buddhist
> Monastery=Hindu
> Monastery=Christian
> Shrine=Buddhist
> Shrine=Hindu
> Shrine=Christian
> Shrine=Stupa
