Wikipedia has a page called:

The Trading Dome is a special tile improvement in Civilization VI. It can be built by a player that is the Suzerain of the Samarkand city-state.

  • Effects:
  • Restrictions:
    • Cannot be adjacent to another Trading Dome.


Depending on your trade route perks, the Trading Dome can be a great source of Gold Gold or mediocre at best. Civilizations with bonuses to international trade routes, like Ethiopia and Egypt, will get the most out of the improvement, though cities with luxury resources can get a good boost as well.

Civilopedia entry[]

One of the most innovative architectural features of Samarkand are its domes. Not content with building one dome above a structure, architects piled dome upon dome, linking them together to make a stable but spacious internal space. On the inside, many of these are decorated with elaborate Islamic muqarnas – ornate decorative vaults. The Chorsu bazaar, the trading dome at the intersection of the roads linking Bukhara, Samarkand, and Tashkent, is an example of this kind of architecture. Inside the bazaar during Samarkand’s height would have been goods and people from China, India, Europe, and the Middle East – virtually the entire known world.


  • The design for the Trading Dome in-game is based on the Chorsu Trading Dome in Samarkand, Uzbekistan.
