Description
The Gate of the Sun is a megalithic stone gateway located in the highlands of Bolivia, near Lake Titicaca. It was constructed by the Tiwanaku culture of the Andes approximately 1500 years ago, and is carved from a single stone block weighing approximately 9 tonnes. Depicted on the gate are figures of humans and condors centered around a divine figure, the identity of which is subject to dispute, with some scholars believing him to be Viracocha, the Incan creator god, while others believe it to be a Sun deity, such as the Incan Inti. Ingame, the Gate of the Sun provides +1 Gold and +1 Faith from walls, while it requires Mathematics.

Requires Gods & Kings expansion pack, and credit to Co-authors Sukritact for the Icon and Chris Sifniotis for the civilopedia

the Neuschwanstein is end game, not at the start of the game lol and it require 2 buildings (wall + castle), not a single one...

What about Neuschwanstein, which gives three yields from Castles? No more OP than base game
unsubscribed, op. It should only give 1 (or maybe 2 ?) faith, no gold. Its too easy to stack gold with that wonder

I like how this fits in with a conquest-happy faith game

Nice wonder. Is it compatible with BNW?

This is a pretty fun wonder given the right setup. I had a ICS game and ended up building this in my Capital and later built Neuschwanstein, so the walls/castles were extremely powerful, especially after going down honor.

It's a decent enough wonder, but I never will build it because of the low bonus and low return.
