Southern Shaolin

Hundreds of years later during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1664) a second Shaolin Temple was constructed in Fukien province, in the south of China and served as another great centre for martial arts and culture.

However in 1664, Manchus from the north invaded China and overthrew the Ming Dynasty and replaced it with the Ching (1664-1911). Most of Northern China was conquered, with Southern China falling many years later. Most activity in Northern Shaolin Temple had ceased. Southern Shaolin continued to flourish however, even after the Manchus conquered Southern China.

Southern Shaolin became a centre for rebel activity against the Ching with many revloutionaries seeking refuge within its walls. The Ching became aware of these activities, and planned its destrucion.
