The National Commission on scenic quality rating has recently ordered Henan Songshan Shaolin Scenic Area to rectify and improve its environment and tourism orders within a time limit. Shaolin Temple confirmed the above information, but claimed that the temple is not responsible for the rectification crisis.

The Songshan Shaolin Scenic Area, located in Dengfeng county, central China's Henan Province, has a total area of 2.8 square kilometers. Since 2009, China Travel International Investment Hong Kong Limited has been running the scenic area. However, as a venue for religious activities, the assets of Shaolin Temple are not within the company's scope of business.
