    His successors didn't (hence Chanukah) but as far as I know from some pretty detailed reading, you are correct regarding  Alexander. I think the book I was reading about Temujin may have glossed over that, but it also may have taken into account the relatively chauvinist Hellenistic view of culture vs the more accepting views of the Mongols. In other words, Alexander may have been okay with tolerance but as I recall it generated push back from other Greeks/Macedonians.

      I do know that the first thing, or one of the first things he did after conquering a land was to pray to the local God. I know he famously did that in Egypt.
