I have the pagoda belief yet none of my cities let me purchase. All of them have my religion and I have plenty of faith but it won't even give me the option.

    Check that the religion definitely has the Pagodas belief, the religion is the majority religion in that city (more than half the population), the city doesn't already have a pagoda and you're on the buy menu. Jan 21, 2014 at 12:36

You can purchase a pagoda in a city if:

  • The city's majority religion has the Pagodas follower belief- remember that the majority religion requires over half the population to follow it.
  • The city doesn't already contain a Pagoda
  • You have enough faith (though if you don't, the option will still appear greyed out).
  • The city is not a puppet.

If all these are true, go to the buy menu in a city (you can't just build faith buildings) and the Pagoda will be there.

    Slight note: Venice can purchase buildings in puppeted cities.
