When I saw the house of Artemis that mounted to the clouds, those other marvels lost their brilliancy, and I said, 'Lo, apart from Olympus, the Sun never looked on aught so grand.'Antipater of Sidon

The Temple of Artemis is an Ancient Era Wonder in Civilization VI: Rise and Fall. It must be built adjacent to a Camp.


With its respectable bonuses to Civ6Food.png Food and Housing6.png Housing and potentially a lot of extra Amenities6.png Amenities from improved resources, the Temple of Artemis is one of the best early wonders for players who want to grow massive cities. Giving Reyna the Tax Collector title and appointing her to the city that builds the Temple of Artemis can provide a wealth of Civ6Gold.png Gold as its Citizen6.png Population increases. As strong as this wonder is, since it is a very early wonder, you should consider how many Camp, Pasture, and Plantation improvements you have to see if it is worth the high opportunity cost.

It is worth noting that the extra Amenities6.png Amenities are not tied to the wonder, but to the improvements affected by it. Therefore, these Amenities6.png Amenities will be supplied to the cities that own the tiles with the appropriate improvements, not the city that builds the wonder. This also means that you can have the relative freedom to choose which city you want to benefit most from working each tile and its Amenities6.png Amenities by swapping tiles between them, either focusing the Amenities6.png Amenities on one city so it can become Ecstatic or spreading them out to increase the number of Happy cities. Since the yield modifier brought by Amenities6.png Amenities is percentage-based, Amenities6.png Amenities matter more in large, productive cities than in small cities, and it is generally advisable to focus your Amenities6.png Amenities on your core cities.

Civilopedia entry

Little remains of this once esteemed holy site. Dedicated to Artemis, the Greek Goddess of the Hunt, the temple suffered multiple devastations and underwent numerous rebuildings. It suffered damage from floods, raids, and arson caused by a man named Herostratus (who just wanted everyone to remember his name).

In its best days, the temple was made of marble, gilded with gold and silver, and is said to have been longer than a football field. Philo of Byzantium, a Greek engineer and writer, declared that the splendor of temple put other contemporary wonders “in the shade.”

A final destruction at the dawn of the 5th Century, led by a Christian mob inspired by “gold-tongued” Saint John Chrysostom, ultimately spelled the end for the Temple of Artemis. In a way, the temple still lives on in present-day Turkey—its stone pillaged and incorporated into other buildings.
