While sacred spaces are frequently defined by religious institutions as either temples, shrines, churches, or mosques, they are not necessarily limited to such conventional categories. For example, Native American tribes regarded caves or other natural wonders as sacred; some spaces do not have to fit strict religious molds to be venerated. In certain ways, Hindu temples also reflect the idea that sacred spaces are flexible and cannot be assumed to possess one specific set of qualities. The Hindu
