The Southern Shaolin Temple was founded in 557 A.D., which had a reputation for being a revolutionary center and the Abbott refused to become a part of emperors army or take orders from him. In an effort to crush the growing rebellion, the Qing army attacked and burned the Southern Shaolin Monastery during middle of the 19th century. Only the most skilled Shaolin Monks escaped the attack. Now, the Southern Shaolin Temple is the centre of martial art in coastal region and famous scenic spots.
