Quiet, small though amazing setting.
Young Shaolins train throughout the day.
No very touristic, not a lot to see.
If you practice Buddhism, you may me lucky enough to participate in a ceremony
Be humble, be quiet.
You will be allowed to take pictures but do not disturb training.

Better than Shaolin! Real China!

We headed to Dengfeng to train Kung Fu at Tagou at the Shaolin Temple. Our Taxi driver said Tagou was crap and we really wanted to go to Fawang. I am so glad we did. We trained at Fawang for a week and it was an amazing experience. We lived, ate, slept, and ached with the students at the temple. If you are going to Dengfeng to see real Kung Fu, go to Fawang. They do not put on a show if that is what you are thinking, they train 120 students daily.

The True Jewel of Shaolin
On the winding journey from Luoyang to Shaolin, the ancient Fawang Temple,beckons the traveller to respite there... On a day framed by flurries of snowflakes, I spied its towering pagoda,set fast against a backdrop of craggy peaks,and stopped to sojourn there....Steep steps lead upwards past aromatic urns, crackling with offerings of juniper kindles,to the wooden red temples,all home to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas,which draw devout worshipers to their portals.Monks clad in mustard robes,braved the icy winds to come and greet all ....distant chantings carried on the breeze bring the heavens down to earth at this most celestial of destinations..Fawang Temple is most certainly the gem of Shaolin
