The Tsikhe is a unique building of the Georgian civilization in Civilization VI: Rise and Fall. It is built in the City Center and replaces the Renaissance Walls.


The Tsikhe can be built faster than the Renaissance Walls and yields Civ6Faith Faith in addition to its defensive bonuses. It plays to the Georgians' strengths well, so they should build it in all their cities as soon as possible after researching Siege Tactics.

Civilopedia entryEdit

High over the landscape, situated in the hills and rocky cliffs, the Georgian fortresses guard the countryside. The tsikhe feature high curtain walls with either rounded or triangular merlons (the solid part of the “cut outs” on the wall). A tower stands at each intersection of joined wall.

The Georgian fortresses were particularly difficult to assault due to their position on the high ground. Although this type of fortress existed during the time of Alexander the Great, the Georgians used them effectively through the 17th Century.
