Staff members of the Shaolin Temple are left idle outside a scenic spot at the Shaolin Temple in Dengfeng City, central China's Henan Province, Jan. 31, 2012. The number of visitors to the famous Shaolin Temple during the Spring Festival starting from Jan. 23 decreased by 41.8 percent and the ticket revenue fell 13.7 percent from the same period of last year, according to statistics from the Dengfeng Tourism Administration. The decline of the popular tourist attraction in Henan Province in the seven day holiday period came after it was warned it could lose its top rating for poor services and maintenance. The National Quality Ranking Committee of Tourist Attractions requires the temple to complete an overhaul by the end of March 2012. (Xinhua/Wang Song)
