The Tower of Victory (Hindi: विजय स्तम्भ) is an Indian Wonder in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties. When built, it grants the player a varying amount of Wood, depending on the age in which it is built. It is comparable to the Quartermaster's bonus aging into the Colonial Age, but as the ages progress, it becomes much more useful.
- Aging from the Discovery Age to the Colonial Age grants 400 wood
- Aging from Colonial to the Fortress Age grants 800 wood
- Aging from Fortress to the Industrial Age grants 1200 wood
- Aging from Industrial to the Imperial Age grants 2000 wood
This Wood bonus is highly beneficial, as apart from allowing the construction of more structures, such as Caravanserais, it is also necessary to train Indian Villagers, who cost Wood rather than Food.
This building also possesses a unique ability called Inspiration, which when activated, will boost the speed, attack, and hitpoints of all the player's units by roughly 10 to 15 percent for 15 seconds. This quick boost can give the player the edge in a single battle. The bonus depends on the unit.
"The Tower of Victory (Vijay Stambha) was built in 1548 to commemorate the victory over the Musalmans in the thirteenth century. The imposing tower is part of the Chittorgarh fort complex located in the city of Chittorgarh, which can be found in the northwestern Indian state of Rajasthan.
The inside of the tower consists of short, square flights that surround a central core. The two uppermost levels cover the entire floor area and provide occupants with a great view of the surrounding fort. Partly built using red sand stone and partly using white marble, the tower is further enriched by numerous images of Hindu gods and goddesses."—In-game history section
