The Nittany Lion Shrine is a large mountain lion sculpture made by Heinz Warneke located at the main campus of the Pennsylvania State University. The shrine is the second most photographed landmark in Pennsylvania, behind the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. The Nittany Lion Shrine at Pennsylvania State University was dedicated on October 24, 1942 during Homecoming. The shrine is a gift of the class of 1940 and rests in a natural setting of trees near the Recreation Building. In 2013, the shrine was renovated to improve the lighting, add a sidewalk, and add large decorative stones. The improvements were a gift from Penn State's class of 2012.
