WHS connected with "Virginity" (Excluding Christian Marian Shrines, which have their own "connection")
|Acropolis||Parthenon = "Virgin's Place" or "Temple of the Virgin Goddess" i.e Athena who never had a lover or consort - although Hephaestus tried to rape her|
|Kathmandu Valley||The living goddess Kumari lives in the Kumari Ghar, a palace in the center of Kathmandu. The word "Kumari" is derived from Sanskrit Kaumarya meaning "virgin"|
|Rome||House of the Vestals, located just behind the circular Temple of Vesta at the eastern edge of the Roman Forum between the Regia and the Palatine Hill.|
