    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

    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.

    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.
