The Shaolin Monastery or Shaolin Temple is a Chan Buddhist temple at Song Shan near Zhengzhou City Henan Province in Dengfeng, China. It is led by Venerable abbot Shi Yangxin. Founded in the 5th century, the monastery is long famous for its association with Chinese martial arts and particularly with Shaolin Kung Fu, and it is the Mahayana Buddhist monastery perhaps best known to the Western world. The Shaolin Monastery and its famed Pagoda Forest were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010 as part of the "Historic Monuments of Dengfeng.
Creator Comment :
It is my new share architecture creation, ~ Shaolin Monastery ~ I created it according to the real temple at Song Shan, Zhengzhou City Henan Province in Dengfeng, China. And I placed some my DIY minifigs at the scene for this creation, you can find : Monks, 18 bronze men and Buddhist abbot. It used ~5000 pieces to build-up the temple. To enhance the creation, I added the Chinese style Gateway, Rock Lion and the well.
