• In China, built the temple, where the monks can fly
This tiny orange figure, soaring over a futuristic design at the top of the Songshan Mountain in China - actually a monk, although he did not fly with the help of meditation. The base structure is hidden giant fan, forcing the air in a vertical wind tunnel, such as those that are used for skydiving.
Designed by Latvian architects from the studio Mailitis complex was inaugurated recently. Flying Temple Shaolin Monks is a 230-seat amphitheater, where Shaolin monks can hold their weekly show. It is hard to imagine how a wind tunnel fits into the scheme of things, but according to the architects' concept tells the history of Zen and Kung Fu through artistic performances and architectural plan of the building. "
In the mountains Sushan is included in the list of monuments of UNESCO World Heritage Site Shaolin Temple, which is also considered the birthplace of the martial art of Kung Fu and Zen Buddhism.
The good news is that the wind tunnel will be open not only to monks, but also to the general public. Anyone will be able to wear a special suit and float in the air like a bird.
