  • Wandering through the forest Temple in the mountains of Shaoshi (as translated Shaolin) and "watching" how many novices are trained in sports schools, or out in the open and with her mouth open watching the show for tourists in the performance of the best pupils, willingly and unwillingly remember everything once seen in movies, read and recognized on the local monks. And severity of learning (in the comic nature of version checking dexterity-from the cartoon "Kung Fu Panda," in a dramatic-Jackie Chan in "Wooden soldiers of Shaolin"). And the origin of martial techniques techniques deriving from Indian animals (although the traditions of martial arts developed and refined throughout the centuries due to the fact that the original Shaolin is a private army, and the present descendants and heirs of monks are mercenaries). Total vegetarianism, meditation, Bodhidharma Prince extraordinary exploits of the soldiers who defended the emperor or the whole of China from Japanese pirates; the origin of tea (first leaves of teas is eyelids throat when rinsing the monk who snatched them to no longer sleep), passing the needle through the glass (I saw this trick during the show, although this Mythbusters myth debunked in due time), this and more comes to mind while walking on Shaolinju, shrouded in haze (what after Beijing, where yellow smog can be cut with a knife already you quickly. And the best are here to walk in the early morning when not quite awakened and yawning students engaged in a two-hour morning gymnastics (and then there will be an afternoon workout, and evening practices), and not so many tourists there is a rare opportunity to make good photos against the backdrop of historical and cultural monuments of Shaolin without unnecessary people in the frame and crowds in the alley

  • Well, this temple is one of the top locations in all China. To feel what it means 2000s years of kung fu and meditation practise, you have to come here. Sit, camly and feed. Trees of 4000 is serious t...  more »
  • Something that you definitely need to do is this performance, is included in the entrance ticket of the Shaolincomplex. Go early for a good seat. What these guests can and do is really incredible.

  • I study in class 4th. I liked shawlin temple and its material art classes. I loved so much shawl on
  • Beautiful temple and grounds. 13 year old son is devotee of Martial Arts and very much wanted to visit here. Exciting that to see monks and to see that young soon to be Senseis are still training here. The 'Kung Fu' show was interesting but somehow seemed to cheapen the deeper meaning of the art of Martial Arts. Just my opinion. But it did not detract from the experience and my son loved every moment at the Temple.
  • Shwlin temple very beutiful and culteral 😐i wish i am coming soon...
  • A beautiful centre of Chan Buddhist culture and kung fu awesomeness. Whether you are interested in the above, or are just looking for a scenic day trip, the Shaolin Temple and surrounding mountains are great, as long as you don't mind crowds. If you do, go early or in winter!
  • I wish I vist soon to learn martial arts.....
