Visitors walk onto a ship swept miles inland during the 2004 tsunami, which has been turned into a memorial in Banda Aceh December 12, 2012. The gates of the memorial close during each of the five daily prayers practiced by Muslims, and visitors are urged to go to a local mosque. Some residents near the sea, together with many others including some local ulama, believe the devastating 2004 tsunami that killed 170,000 people in Aceh province was the punishment from God for those who broke Islamic laws and fear it might happen again. Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim nation, but nowhere is the faith more strictly interpreted than in Aceh, sometimes referred to as the "verandah of Mecca" because it was one of the first parts of the archipelago to turn to Islam. Aceh is Indonesia's only province to have implemented sharia, or Islamic laws. Picture taken December 12, 2012. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj (INDONESIA - Tags: CRIME LAW SOCIETY RELIGION)
