BackArrowGreen Back to the list of wonders in Civ4

In Civilization IV, the religious shrines are the most sacred buildings of religions. Players usually just call them shrines since there are no other shrines in the game. Each religion has its own shrine, but other than their names and their particular religious affiliation, all the shrines have exactly the same attributes.

Building a ShrineEdit

To build a shrine, you must generate a Great Prophet. When you have a Great Prophet, you must move him to the holy city for the religion for which you want to build a shrine. Once you have done that, you will see that the button to make that shrine has become active. (If the city is the holy city for more than one religion, you'll see more than one of the shrine buttons are active.) Press the button to create a shrine, and the shrine is built instantly, with the Great Prophet being consumed in the process. It is possible to have more than one shrine in a single city.
