Strategy[]

The Shrine is added in Gods & Kings, the first expansion for Civilization V. It is the first Faith Faith-producing building, available very early (after researching Pottery). Note that your empire normally doesn't produce ANY Faith Faith (unless you settled next to a Natural Wonder, or are playing as the Celts), so you'll need to build Shrines and start accumulating Faith Faith early on if you want to found a religion.

Civilopedia entry[]

Shrines are sacred monuments typically built to memorialize revered cultural icons or religious figures. Represented in nearly every religious denomination found throughout the world, shrines play an important role in religious ceremonies in both public and private worship.
