Shaolin Temple Pictures

Shaolin Temple is famous for not only its brilliant history but also the wonderful Shaolin martial arts.

The Shaolin Temple, located on the Shaoshi Mountain in the west of Dengfeng County, Henan Province, is the 'ancestor court' of Chinese Zen Buddhism. During the Southern and Northern Dynasties (386-589), the Indian monk Bodhidharma, a profound exponent of Zen Buddhism came to China. Emperor Xiaowendi of Northern Wei gave him a very courteous reception. Later, in 496, the emperor decreed that a Buddhist temple be built on the Shaoshi Mountain and food be supplied to the monks. It is today's Shaolin Temple. Attraction Intro: Shaolin Temple

Hi, you can take a bus from Kaifeng to Zhengzhou Bus Station first, and then take a regular bus to Dengfeng West Station. After that, take a bus directly to Shaolin Temple.

Song Mountain and Henan Museum in Zhengzhou are worthy a visit. Millennium City Park in Kaifeng is also good.

Yes, you can see the Shaolin Zen Music Ritual. Don't worry. The ticket costs CNY 199, 249, 299, 449 and 899. The online booking page only has Chinese version. Thus you can ask help for your Chinese friends. Or dial 0371-62809111 to book the tickets in advance.

Hope helpful!

Well, a double room in a middle class hotel, not a star one costs about rmb200 per night or less. The room should has TV, air-conditioner, bath room and free internet access.
Rmb100 per person and per day for food is also enough, if you don't eat luxuriously. Then, another big cost is the adnmission fee, which is 110RMB.

If you'll go to there, better visit the Longmen Grottoes too, which is not far. You have to do taste the Chinese dumplings, Jiaozi there.
About the cost, it is really hard to say. It depends on what level of hotels are you going to stay and how many cities and sites are you going to visit, will you shop a lot...

Better to go from Zhengzhou. You may spend 2 hours by bus from Zhengzhou to Songshan, it is a challenge to ride there.
