More about Dengfeng: 

In Dengfeng, tourists can visit "the Centre of Heaven and Earth in China" which is one of the UNESCO World Heritage site since 2010.

 

Dengfeng, one of the early capitals of China around 4000 years ago, is located at the foot of the Mt. Songshang, one of the most sacred mountains in China. The city is one of the most renowned spiritual centres of China, home to various religious institutions and temples, such as the Taoist Zhongyue Temple (for the god of Sacred Mt.Songshan, the central sacred mountain of China), the Buddhist Shaolin Temple, as well as the Confucian Songyang Academy, hence its poetic expression derived from Chinese literature as the spiritual "Centre of Heaven and Earth".  

 

The centre of heaven and earth in astronomical terms is used as a propitious place for a capital of terrestrial power, and Mount Songshan as the natural symbol of the centre of heaven and earth is used as the focus for sacred rituals that reinforce that earthly power. The buildings that clustered around Dengfeng were of the highest architectural standards when built and many were commissioned by Emperors. They thus reinforced the influence of the Dengfeng area.
