    If Holy Cities can't be razed, how many of you guys make a non-Capital city a HC?

    You use your first great prophet in the city other than the capital.

    This can sometiems be useful should the other city have a better production than the capital.

    also its beeter to get more cities into your HC pressure radius (2x strong w grand temple) so non capital locations can be preferable

    Every game I mean to do this, but I always forget and create my religion in my capital. Sometimes it doesn't matter but other times if I've forward settled Ethiopia it does.

    I rarely do that because it seems much easier and quicker to get the holy city in the capital while missing out on the razing bonus that a secondary city could get. That's a good tip if you want to keep another city from being razed though.
