High atop the frigid northern peaks of the Kun-Lai Summit looms the Temple of the White Tiger (or Tiger Temple),[1] an ancient training ground protected by an elite force of martial priests, along with the spirit of the White Tiger itself.[2] It was secretly constructed by the first monk, Kang the Fist of First Dawn, and his followers once they relocated to Kun-Lai Summit during the reign of Emperor Lao-Fe the Slavebinder, after the mogu heard word of the Pandaren Revolution.[3] Following the Siege of Orgrimmar, the trial of Garrosh Hellscream took place in the temple, attended by the Alliance, Horde, August Celestials and the Shado-Pan. It was attacked by Garrosh's last followers led by Zaela to create a distraction for Kairoz who transported Garrosh into an alternate Draenor.[4]

Near the building holding Xuen himself is The Emperor's Burden - Part 6, providing a small bit of lore about Shaohao, the last emperor of Pandaria. Interacting with the shrine is one of the objectives of [The Seven Burdens of Shaohao], a Pandaria exploration achievement.
