The Buddha Palace within the temple is particularly notable, featuring colorful paintings on the east, west, and north walls, all created during the Ming dynasty.Throughout your visit, our knowledgeable guide will provide detailed historical insights and ensure you experience the rich cultural heritage of the Shaolin Temple to its fullest.
