There is a new hospital being built to replace the old Stobhill Hospital. Actually pretty much all the inpatient services are being moved to Glasgow Royal Infirmary and the 'new' Stobhill will be mostly outpatient services.

They've incorporated a chapel, but of course they can't call it a chapel, so it's called The Sanctuary (I find myself saying that word in the manner of Quasimodo "Sanctuary!Sanctuary!")

There are no religious symbols in there, no cross, no altar, just a space for prayer and meditation. There is, of course, a qiblah.

What a surprise.
