Photo of the day: Shaolin Temple

When I travelled to China I had the chance to visit the Shaolin Monastery, the place Kung Fu was established. The monastery at Zhengzhou is the main temple of the Shaolin school of Buddhism and it is visited by thousands of people yearly. However, instead of from the excellence of the monastery, and the majestic forest and mountains, what surprised me the most was the enormous number of martial artists practising. The students were not only inside the temple but also all over the area of Dengfeng, the city the monastery is located. It was incredible. They were all over, in the schools, on the streets, everywhere. Their loud shouts could be heard from every corner of the city. It was an incredible and unique experience.
