"Livestock generate more experience points when tasked to a Sacred Field. Trains Cows."
In-game description

The Sacred Field is an economic building in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties that is unique to the Indians. It is similar in function to the Livestock Pen where livestock can be tasked to it, but since Indian Villagers cannot gather from livestock and they generates experience points instead, it increases the rate at which Indian livestock generates experience, and trains Sacred Cows instead of Cows.

History

"As a source of food and a symbol of life in Hinduism, the cow may not be killed. According to the ancient religious text, the “Rigveda,” the cow is a goddess associated with Aditi, the mother of all gods. Therefore, slaughter is taboo. In ancient times, cows were sacrificed and their meat eaten, but never primarily for consumption, and milk-producing cows were never killed. Even during periods when meat-eating was permitted, vegetarianism was encouraged.

On a more practical level, slaughtering cows for beef was an extremely expensive act for sacrifice or as a gift, since the animal was a source of many important products: milk for consumption, fuel from dung, and browned butter for lamps. Later, in the early centuries CE, the cow became an appropriate gift to priests of the higher caste, or Brahmans. It was even said that killing a cow was equal to killing a Brahman.
