  • Our tour to China would have never been complete without visiting this temple! The kung fu and martial arts performance, that too in the temple itself was a life time experience! The ambience of the monastery was mystic and divine !
  • We chartered a driver from Zhengzhou through our hotel to tour Shaolin and the Longmen Grottoes. It is around 800 rmb and allowed us freedom to travel on our schedule. The temple is in good condition, and have much to offer. You can see where the monks' fingers made holes in the trees while practicing finger Kung Fu, and where the floor dented from repeated kicking. Be prepared to walk 5 or more miles if you do not take the shuttle around. Watch 36 Chambers of Shaolin on Netflix to get an idea of how it was in the 80's! The 5x daily performances are packed, so get there early for seating. Shop around for best prices as every store will try to charge you different prices for the identical item. The temple is more a business conglomerate than a Buddhist sanctuary now, but the historical significance makes it a must see if you are in the area for tourism.
  • Here anyone can get peace ,it's a very peaceful place and a spirit also and people's are lives here (Buddhist monks ) for others for their whole life and I also like Buddha's Philosophy, NAMO BUDDHAY, NAMO TASS BHAGWATO, ARHATO SAMMA SAMBUDDHARS🙏🙏🙏
