A common sight while travelling are travellers' shelters. These small three-walled shelters are usually found near intersections, and provides information about the roads ahead, and a shelter for travellers who wait for caravans to pass by. These shelters have a map painted on one wall, both telling where you are, and where each road leads to. They also contains bulletin boards that contain posters and information regarding job opportunities, wanted criminals, festivals and happenings, and other useful information about the nearby cities. These shelters vary in size and shape. They are usually built of surrounding materials and built to both last and shelter from the local weather. Some have elaborate decorations, and many have small shrines for gods of travel, depending on which religions are in the area.
