A House of worship (or more commonly called, a "Temple") is a building which expands its host city's influence on national borders, and also improves the host city's ability to defend itself. A house of worship also serves to conduct religion and taxation research, and also recruits low-level chivalric order units for Christian factions.

For Muslims, the House of worship is also the recruitment site of some of its best units, but only if a certain type of government was chosen.

Taxation Taxation[edit]

Although caravans passing along trade routes can collect wealth, tax however is the main way by which you can enrich your coffers with wealth.

Tax ensures that you can collect money from any active economic activity which goes on in your realm, as well from the percentage of territory you control on the map.
