  • Hopefully you will see some training by the students. The temple is quite nice, but the most interesting is seeing the students performing.  more »
  • 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 of monks and the heirs of 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 much another 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 best here to walk in the early morning when not quite awakened and yawning students engage in the 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 on the alley

  • Historical and amazing. Caution - there are people at foothill luring tourist saying they can bring them inti the shaolin area with half price. Never entertain as once you got on that van...they will bring you behind the shaolin area ...up the mountain and ask you to sneak thru the backdoor. Dangerous
  • Must visit at least once in a lifetime, take the personal tour to understand the history and background.
  • If you like to see shaolin monks you can visit here. There is a kun-fu show in the evening which is really inserting. Its also a very scenic spot in China. You have to park the vehicle and get a electric car from them to go to the temple. Otherwise there is quite a lot of walking to be done.
  • Nice place, nice temple, kept in quite good condition The show I have seen was short and hug made for tourist attraction.. Quite cheap the fee.
  • The original Shaolin temple. The place is huge so expect lots of walking. For the lazies, there are shuttle services within the temple and park. The kung fu show was awesome.
