Almost the most important property of religious place. Koala0090 (talk) 19:56, 4 October 2019 (UTC)


  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Good idea (I added an example and changed diety to deity), however a mosque is not a certain worship place but a subclass of religious buildings Germartin1 (talk) 06:19, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
    • @Germartin1: Thanks for your correction and opinion, how about change "worship place" into "religious place" in description? ---Koala0090 (talk) 12:28, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
      • @Koala0090: I was referring to the word "certain" and I think it makes to sense to only allow instances of places. Further, I think the property makes mostly sense to Hindu/Buddhist temples, as other religions only have one god. What about a "St. Paul's Church", is the deity Jesus Christ or St. Paul, or should we only use the property "named after". However I'm not really religious so don't count on my word. So let's wait for more feedback Germartin1 (talk) 13:57, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

    • @Thierry Caro: I hope that you have acknowledged that in polytheism countries like Taiwan or India, there can be multiple deities in a single temple. The property dedicated to (P825) couldn't offer us effective information about the main deity of the certain religious place. ---Koala0090 (talk) 17:06, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
      One may use a object has role (P3831) qualifier for the main one. Thierry Caro (talk) 17:14, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
