Game Info[]

  • +8 Faith Faith
  • Doubles religious pressure emanating from this City.
  • BNW-only.png +1 20xHappiness5.png Happiness with Universal Healthcare tenet (any Ideology)

Strategy[]

The Grand Temple wonder is a fine tool for religious-oriented empires, helping them both to spread their religion and defend against other strong religions nearby. As with all national wonders, it's better to be built early.

Civilopedia entry[]

A Grand Temple is a revered holy site held sacred among the followers of a given religion. These temples often feature grand architecture and ornate inscriptions that stand for centuries as a testament to the faith of the religion's adherents. Although there is no clear consensus as to which of the many temples found throughout the world today is the oldest, many believe the Göbekli Tepe - found in modern Turkey and assembled over 12,000 years ago - to be the earliest man-made religious structure ever discovered.
