"The first time I stepped onto the rooftop of the Potala Palace, I felt, as never before or since, as if I were stepping onto the rooftop of my being; onto some dimension of consciousness that I'd never visited before."

The Potala Palace is a Renaissance Era Wonder in Civilization VI. It must be built on a Hill adjacent to a Mountain.

StrategyEdit

The Potala Palace provides bonuses that are useful to both culturally and religiously focused players, as well as an extra slot for a Diplomatic Policy Card. Its placement requirements are rather specific, but the policies it allows its owner to adopt can be useful for earning Envoy6 Envoys and befriending city-states early on (and increasing other yields later in the game).

The Potala Palace is one of the best wonders for America to build in Rise and Fall, as its Civ6Icon Diplomatic Policy Diplomatic slot is turned into a Civ6Icon Wildcard Slot Wildcard slot by Founding Fathers. It can also help American players who are working towards a Diplomatic Victory in Gathering Storm, in which the Civ6Icon Wildcard Slot Wildcard slot the wonder provides will generate an extra +1 Diplomatic Favor (Civ6) Diplomatic Favor per turn from Founding Fathers along with the Diplomatic Victory point from building it. If the Americans manage to build both the Potala Palace and the Forbidden City, they'll have an impressive +2 Civ6Icon Wildcard Slot Wildcard slots in their government.

Civilopedia entry Edit

Since there wasn’t much level ground in Tibet, with its base set on the southern slope of the Red Hill, the Potala Palace – home to the Dalai Lama (until the fourteenth one fled an uprising in 1959) – sort of grew along the hillside. The palace is named after Mount Potalaka, abode of the eleven-headed bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara. Today, its crimson and white walls and golden roof “shine in glory” … for paying tourists. Lozang Gyatso, the fifth Dalai Lama, began construction of the “modern” palace above Lhasa c. 1645 AD, and moved in four years later. Since then more bits and pieces have been added to the sprawling edifice, notably the Potrang Marpo (“red palace”) and the holy stupa completed in 1694. However, it should be noted that the Potala Palace has only one bathroom, located on the right side of the White Palace Square … although it is said to be the most beautiful restroom on Earth, filled with sunlight and good thoughts.
