Just cemetary for deserving monks. Took a quick walk past them. We were advise against taking picture as they are cemetaries.

Although it is basically a cemetery for the monks it is full of history. It was very interesting to hear the significance of the size and levels of the different pagodas.

It’s basically a cemetery, but with interesting pagodas as tombstones instead. Since this place is so close to Shaolin temple, it’s worth a visit & some pictures. Some tour groups do stop by here for a quick visit.

This place is just 300m from the Shaolin Temple. All local tour groups only visit the Shaolin Temple and left, hence this place is rather peaceful and quiet. The pagodas are fenced and scattered, with different sizes and designs, an indication of their religious status....More

There is a lot of history here. Each pagoda id made with a lot of information of the person it's for. On one of the more recent Pagoda's, it has a computer carved on it.

These monuments to the monks were quite interesting (if difficult to interpret, given no English signage). We had a nice walk around the perimeter. Its well worth a visit while you are at the Temple.
