{{Quote|Trains repentant outlaws and mercenaries. Provides Monk improvements.|In-game description}}

The '''Monastery''' is a military [[Buildings (Age of Empires III)|building]] in ''[[Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties|The Asian Dynasties]]'' that is unique to the Asian civilizations ([[Chinese (Age of Empires III)|Chinese]], [[Indians (Age of Empires III)|Indians]], and [[Japanese (Age of Empires III)|Japanese]]). It is an equivalent of the European [[Saloon]], but also provides technologies to improve [[Monk (Age of Empires III)|Monks]].
   
==Overview==
+
[[Mercenaries (Age of Empires III)|Outlaws and mercenaries]] trained at the Monastery are statistically identical to ones trained at the Saloon in most cases, but have the '''Repentant''' prefix added before their names (e.g. Repentant Pistolero, Repentant Corsair, etc.).
The Monastery trains [[Mercenaries (Age of Empires III)|outlaw and mercenary units]], with the only difference between mercenaries trained in the Monastery with the ones in the [[Saloon]] is that the former have "Repentant" added before their names, although both are statistically identical. The Monastery also provides unique improvements for the respective Asian civilizations' [[Monk (Age of Empires III)|Monk]]s.

This article is about the building in Age of Empires III. For the building in Age of Empires II, see Monastery (Age of Empires II). For other similar buildings, see Temple or Church.
"Trains repentant outlaws and mercenaries. Provides Monk improvements."
In-game description

The Monastery is a military building in The Asian Dynasties that is unique to the Asian civilizations (Chinese, Indians, and Japanese). It is an equivalent of the European Saloon, but also provides technologies to improve Monks.

Outlaws and mercenaries trained at the Monastery are statistically identical to ones trained at the Saloon in most cases, but have the Repentant prefix added before their names (e.g. Repentant Pistolero, Repentant Corsair, etc.).

History

"“Monastery” derives from the Greek word “monasterion,” and describes a group of people, usually monks or nuns, who live a life apart from the rest of society because of their devotion to a religion and its ascetic principles. This community often shares the common goal of striving to reach spiritual perfection and wisdom, often taking vows of celibacy, poverty, and obedience.

Monasteries were first built in the fourth century BCE to accommodate pilgrims during their annual retreat, or vassa, a period lasting from July to October. The vassa took place during Southeast Asia’s rainy season. The monks, who were typically a migratory group, were expected to remain in a single place out of the weather, and under intense meditation. Early retreats were held in pavilions and parks that had been donated by wealthy benefactors. These vihara, Sanskrit for “refuges,” became popular, and as time passed the custom of permanently residing in communal dwellings became more desirable.

One of the most famous Buddhist monasteries is the Shaolin Monastery, located in the Henan province of China, founded in 495 CE. The edifice is associated specifically with Chan Buddhism and the martial art of Kung Fu. Monastery legend states that the Indian monk Bodhidharma visited the temple in 527 CE. During his time meditating on the mountain overlooking the monastery, Bodhidharma taught himself a form of martial arts to defend against wild animals and bandits. He stayed at the temple for nine years, and before his departure he taught his disciples the skills he had learned, creating the martial arts legend that surrounds the Shaolin monks to this day.
