In Istanbul: something to emulate

Istanbul mosques-many of them dating back to the 15Th century-are maintained as if they were built yesterday. They are active-people praying, people visiting demanding a whole culture involved with preserving them. You can tell how reverential the attachment to their upkeep is.

The Istanbul example serves as inspiration for the Shrine Keeper's post-someone with a stipend who oversees the upkeep of A Sighting Device. Part and parcel of building one, is the providing for the Shrine Keeper's position.
