Age of Empires Series Wiki

The Dome of the Rock is an unconstructable building in Age of Empires II. It is a decorative structure without actual function in-game that appears only in some campaigns and the Scenario Editor (under the Other tab). The Dome of the Rock is the only building that can regenerate.

Campaign appearances[]

The Dome of the Rock appears in the following campaign scenarios.




  • Before Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, the squared terrain around the Dome was sandy, not transparent like in other buildings.
  • The dome's color is anachronistic, as it was not gilded until 1963 in reality. Previously the dome was covered in black lead.
  • During Crusader rule, the Dome of the Rock was converted into a church, and its shape inspired the round churches built by the Templar Knights in Europe.
