Shaolin Monastery, China

Also known as the Shaolin Temple, this was our second stop after arriving in Henan. Shaolin is a Buddhist Temple located in Dengfeng in the Henan Province, here in China. Shaolin is known for teaching buddhism and different chinese martial arts, and has been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also famous for it’s Pagoda Forest.
