This is the most important building a village has, and it contains lots of information.
Hovering the hand over a village center will show how much belief the player has on that village (or how much belief is needed for the village to be converted, if the village center doesn't belong to the player) hovering the hand will also show how many people live on the village and how much room for villagers there is (this is always shown in a x/y model, x being current villagers and y being room for those villagers).
A village center will have up to six stone hands wich hold the miracles the village offers to the god who currently controls it. Right clicking on these miracles will have the same effect as performing the corresponding gesture.
The totem can be raised or lowered (ranging from 0% to 100% villagers) to bring worshippers to the worship site. The totem is shaped after the creature owned by the god who controls the village (or a stone hand, if no god controls the village). Above the totem are the symbols of gods that have impressed the village to some degree. The lower their symbol, the closer that god is from converting the village.
Just like a village store, if this building is attacked, the worshippers from that village will abandon the worship site and run to the village to help.
