"Yet in this captious and intenible sieve
I still pour in the waters of my love
And lack not to lose still: thus, Indian-like,
Religious in mine error, I adore
The sun, that looks upon his worshipper,
But knows of him no more."
–William Shakespeare

The Great Bath is an Ancient Era Wonder in Civilization VI: Gathering Storm. It must be built on a Floodplains tile.

  • Effects:
    • +3 Housing6 Housing.
    • +1 Amenities6 Amenity from entertainment.
    • Floodplains tiles along the river containing this wonder are now immune to Flood damage.
    • -50% Civ6Production Production and Civ6Food Food yields from Flood damage.
    • +1 Civ6Faith Faith to the yields of a tile belonging to this city for every time it has been Flooded.

StrategyEdit

This Wonder comes very early in the game, being available at Pottery. Acting as an early Dam, the Great Bath will ensure safety from floods without the fear of Spy offensives flooding the valley. While the Civ6Food Food and Civ6Production Production yields do get reduced, the Civ6Faith Faith will prove useful for religious aims or for complimenting an early Golden-Age Monumentality for the ability to quickly churn out Settlers, Traders, and Builders.

If you play against the AI on a high difficulty level (Emperor or above), their free Eureka6 Eurekas and Civ6Science Science bonuses will allow them to research Pottery before you, making rushing the Great Bath incredibly difficult. Keep this in mind.

Civilopedia entryEdit

The Great Bath at Mohenjo-daro was uncovered in 1926 in Sindh, Pakistan among the ruins of the Indus civilization. Though much of the life and culture of these people remains a mystery to scholars today, their ability to create this vast, water-tight structure was an impressive feat indeed. Measuring 12 by 7 meters with a depth of up to 2.4 meters, the tank was made of tightly packed bricks and mud, and sealed with a natural tar. But what was the purpose of a great public bath in a city where nearly every home contained its own bathing area? Though speculative, scholars seem to have agreed that it may have been used for religious purposes, as this was the closest structure to a temple uncovered in the area.

Today, the archaeological site lies far from the usual tourist routes in Pakistan, but many still visit the rural location to gaze in wonder at what remains of this ancient, mysterious city.
