Monasteries are a type of religious site, taking up a 3×3 square of tiles on an embark map, and are built by monastic orders, which are headed by an abbot.
They always have one each of the following structures: a dormitory which will be lined with beds, a canteen which will contain two rows of tables and chairs of wildly-varying materials, a warehouse consisting of a few empty rooms, and a temple, a religious site in the shape of a multi-floor rectangular building with engraved walls and statues scattered about. The engravings and statues are predominantly religious in nature, featuring the object of worship and the ascension of custom-named priests. On the bottom-most floor, pedestals are kept for storing artifacts.
In addition to the main four structures, there will be a number of shrines, statues standing outside, surrounded with varying patterns in the earth. There is a maximum of five shrines to a monastery, though it is currently unknown if the minimum number is 1 or 0. These shrines will sometimes have small altars beside them, which will sometimes contain divination dice.
