The Dengfeng municipal government of Henan province reached an agreement with the Hong Kong-based China Travel Service Group (CTS) to create a company to manage all the tourism near the famous Shaolin Temple on Songshan Mountain in Henan. The company will even go public in 2011.

However, Shaolin Temple and its abbot Shi Yongxin haven’t learned this news. This sounds weird. In the past, Shi Yongxin has emphasized several times that Shaolin Temple will not go public. This time, the local government has decided to let the Shaolin Temple go public and Shaolin Temple itself even doesn’t know about this.

Seriously, do you think it is a good idea to make Shaolin Temple go public?

Cherry07, the latest news reports that this was just a RUMOUR. The Dengfeng municipal government clarifies that both sides are just negotiating on the issue but haven't signed an agreement yet.

To me, Shaolin Temple is not just a temple anymore. It is highly commercialized. One thing you should keep in mind is that Don't buy incense there for worshipping unless you are very very rich.
