Background

"The Ziggurats were religious centers dedicated to the gods of ancient Sumeria. Each was comprised of a temple built upon of a series of tiered, earthen platforms, raising the building atop and dwarfing the surrounding structures. Every city's Ziggurat was dedicated to one specific god. These individual dedications sprung from the Sumerian belief that each temple was not a place of worship, but the actual home of the god. Belief held that the gods originated from the distant mountains, and it is thought that the ziggurats were raised in order to make the new dwellings of the gods a little more like home."

Strategy

"Constructing the Ziggurat, the Sumerian replacement for the Courthouse, requires fewer hammers than its generic counterpart."

Difference from Courthouse

It costs only 90 Hammer, instead of 120, and it requires the technology Priesthood, instead of Code of Laws.
