Hi...I was reading a book about India and I found the word:"sanctuary" and the word "shrine"...is there any difference between the two words? Thanks a lot!
Firstly, I am not an Indian. Secondly, I am not a teacher.
sanctuary means: "protection or a safe place, especially for someone or something being chased or hunted".
shrine means: "a place for worship which is holy because of a connection with a holy person or object".
