Hot Spots:

Longmen Caves - one of three major cave systems in China. These grandiose caves filled with immense Buddhas are wealth created by the ancient Chinese. The grottoes were densely carved on the cliff of two mountains: Xiangshan and Longmenshan. Valuable relics, like niches, inscriptions, stupas, and sculptures are richly housed here. Longmen Caves was listed in the UNESCO World Heritage in November 2000.

Shaolin Temple - Situated in the Song Mountain, about 12 kilometers from the west of Dengfeng City, it is the most reputable and longest standing temple in China. The temple is the ancestor court of Zen and the birthplace of the Shaolin Kung Fu that has become the treasures of Chinese martial arts after perfecting from generation to generation. Now the Shaolin Temple has become the only tourist destination for Zen and Martial Arts training. The main scenic spots in the temple are the Hall of Heavenly Kings, the Grand Hall, the Sutra Depository, Hall of Thousands of Buddha and the Pagoda Forest.

White Horse Temple - Known as the first temple of Chinese Buddhism, its history can be dated back to 1900 years ago. In 64 AD, the Emperor Mingdi of the Eastern Han Dynasty dispatched envoys to the Western Regions to make a courtesy call for Buddhism. Three years later, the envoys and two great Indian monks returned with scriptures and Buddha statues which were carried back by white horses. In the next year, the emperor ordered to build a temple in Luoyang and named White Horse Temple to enshrine the services of the white horses.
