The pagoda forest has many tombs for the monks who attained Moksha (heavenly place). Some of the pagodas are way too old spanning across centuries. Nice place inside the shaolin temple

This is where the monks are buried. It is really peaceful and lovely. A far walk from the entrance. We had a guide so she made sure we didn't miss this.
