Google lists 'Swift City, Era-zona' as place of worship in Glendale

The city formerly known as Glendale is now, apparently, known as "Swift City, Era-zona" and has gotten thousands of views online.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The city formerly known as Glendale has undergone a holy transition after its recent name change, at least according to Google.

The city, now known as Swift City, made its prophetic name-change decision after apparent goddess Taylor Swift announced it would be the first stop on her sacred Eras Tour.

The name has even become Google official, with "Swift City, Era-zona" being listed as a "place of worship" on the search engine.

It's unclear how the name change made it to Google Maps, as Google has not responded to 12News request for comment as of publication. 

"Swift City" is also Apple Maps official, although the software doesn't go as far as to list the temporary name as a holy site.

Thousands of fans took notice of the divine intervention, with multiple online posts about the new map location getting thousands of views on Reddit and Twitter.

"Eraszona, however, is Holy. That is all," said Reddit user Sbplaint on the Taylor Swift subreddit.

"I am the lucky one to have just landed in this Holy Ground," said Reddit user Otaku_Swiftie on the same post. "This is truly a State of Swift."
