Shaolin Temple Tours

Known as the birthplace of Kung Fu, the Shaolin Temple or Shaolin Monastery was first built in 477 A.D. as a Buddhist monastery by Emperor Xiaowen of the Northern Wei Dynasty (386 - 584 A.D.) The Shaolin Temple is located in Henan Province, near the city of Dengfeng with the provincial capital of Zhengzhou about two hours away.
