A cradle of Chinese civilization, the central Chinese province of Henan boasts a long history, beautiful natural sceneries and abundant cultural heritage.

It's home to several UNESCO world heritage sites, including the Longmen Grottoes, part of the Grand Canal, and the Historic Monuments of Dengfeng in "The Center of Heaven and Earth".

Henan is also famous for the Shaolin Temple - the cradle of Chinese martial arts, and the Chen-style tai chi. Tai chi, an age-old Chinese martial art that has now become a popular daily exercise for many Chinese, aims to balance the mind, body and spirit.

Amazing China in 60 Seconds is a short-video series covering cultural and scenic hotspots across the country.
