Is it sacrilegious to depict Judaism and Temple Worship in video games?

In my free time I’ve been working on a project, a type of city-manager but set in Biblical times. It features the topography of the area of Jerusalem and involves running the city, managing resources, warfare, etc. It’s very historical based, using real peoples and nations.

I would like to include a “religious mechanic”, including the Jewish Temple compound. It is sacrilegious to depict the Temple in a video game? For example, showing the Kohanim and Levites going about their duties, depicting animal sacrifice, depicting the festivals and holy days, etc. Obviously, I wouldn’t show the names of G-d.

What do you guys think?

Thanks for your time and input.
