Chogha Zanbil is the world's best preserved Ziggurat, and one of the few located outside of the Mesopotamia region, instead being found in modern day Iran where it was built by Elamites around 1250 BCE. The Ziggurat is dedicated mainly to the god Inshushinak, although smaller temples within the site honour many other gods of the same Pantheon. Ingame, Chogha Zanbil provides a free temple in the city in which it is built, as well as +2 faith, while it requires Bronze Working.

A free temple is mostly equivalent to the upkeep cost of the temple in gold income. In effect, the wonder is worth 2 faith and 1 gold (2 gold? I'm not certain.) In any case, over-all it seems a little weak. Given the description talks about it also hosting many smaller temples, maybe have it add an extra bonus for every minority religion represented in the host city, or something like that? Just a thought.

As I've said, this also provides a free temple - meaning that you won't need to pay the maintenence. With the +3 faith from the temple and the +2 faith from Chogha Zanbil you're getting 5 free faith as opposed to +3 faith which you have to pay for with the temple

I understand your reasoining with the faith being the same as Stonehedge due to the free temple but it is not the same. Religion bonuses, policy bonuses as well as some civilization bonuses are built on temples. Unless this building counts as one then a temple is arguably better than this wonder. Also you have to think of maximum faith per city. Stonehedge increases this by five, this wonder gives only two. I am all about game balance and many mods are silly and overpowered. This one is underpowered. I'll throw out that maybe do a faith and culture bonus. Such as +3 faith and +3 culture (I feel that faith is more valuable than culture, but might be in error). You could do +3 fatih and +2 culture for more 1 for 1 balance. Just some thoughts. Either way this wonder needs some beefing up.

It also provides 2 faith, meaning it's equivilent to Stonehenge in terms of faith given (With that of the temple)

The ONLY thing it does is to provide as temple in the city which it is built in??? it should do something more!

It probably would, but Masonry is already full, and not all of the wonders show up on the tech tree for it when you're researching it

Good mod, good balance, good picture description. But why did you chose bronze? Wouldnt it fit better under masonry? I dont know the history myself, but it looks like bricks.

I suppose Stone Henge doesn't give any culture, so I guess I can see that. I guess having both might be a little overpowered then, ya? Thanks for taking the time to answer!
