Game InfoEdit

Requires Piety.

  • +3 20xfaith5 Faith
  • All Missionaries born in this city can spread religion three times. Prophets also gain an additional use of Spread Religion, for a total of five uses provided they are not automatically generated (that is, they have to be selected and bought, like an Inquisitor). A Prophet gained by completing the Piety policy tree also will not get this bonus.
  • Free Mosque in the city.

StrategyEdit

The main bonus of the Great Mosque of Djenne makes spreading a religion easier. Activating the Piety tree and researching the Theology technology are both necessary to build it.

Also, if building it is expected, not adopting the Mosques belief will allow the bonus Mosque from the Wonder to be an added benefit to all other effects from the religion of the city it is located in.

Historical InfoEdit

The largest mud-brick structure in the world, the Great Mosque of Djenne is found in the African Republic of Mali. Thought to have first been constructed sometime in the 13th century by the sultan Koi Kunboro, the mosque has since been destroyed and rebuilt several times. The incarnation that stands today, assembled from mud bricks and mortar, was built in 1906 through the combined efforts of the surrounding community. Today, the mosque is maintained by the people of Djenne during an annual festival created specifically to ensure its longevity.
