Please do not add more examples to the wiki which contradict the definition (that a wayside shrine requires a shrine) while we’re still discussing here.
Looking in a dictionary, “shrine” can mean:
A place regarded as holy because of its associations with a divinity or a sacred person or relic, marked by a building or other construction.
1.1 A place associated with or containing memorabilia of a particular revered person or thing.
‘her grave has become a shrine for fans from all over the world’
.2 A casket containing sacred relics; a reliquary
1.3 A niche or enclosure containing a religious statue or other object.
all these examples are about “enclosing” something, because it is the meaning of shrine and enshrining.
I would not consider a freestanding statue or several of them (not in a niche or covered or inside some other construction) , a “shrine”
(this refers to the buddhist example that was added and to the column that was already there)
