|This article is about the building in Age of Empires. For other similar buildings, see Temple, Church, or Monastery.|
The Temple is a civilian building in Age of Empires first available for construction in the Bronze Age. The main purpose of Temples in Age of Empires is to train Priests, who can heal allied units and convert enemy ones. To construct, Temples cost 200 wood. They are available to every civilization with the exception of the Macedonians.
Additional technologies can be researched from the Temple. They mostly improve the Priest's abilities, or improve civilian units such as Villagers. Some technologies researched from the Temple are required to upgrade to elite units, for example "Fanaticism" is needed to upgrade Long Swordsman to Legions.
