The "Cave of the Dragon" (龙窟) is the home of the immortal dragon Shou-Lao. Shou-Lao was the source of the power of K'un-Lun. During a performance of the dragon riders of K'un-Lun for the entertainment of its Yu-Ti, Shou-Lao went berserk and attacked the city's leader. He was slain by Quan-St'ar, who cut out the dragon's heart. Enraged at this, Yu-Ti banished Quan-St'ar from the city and revived the dragon by melting its heart and placing it in a sacred cavern.
Danny Rand defeated the dragon, and in the course of the battle had the dragon-shaped tattoo burned on his chest. After defeating Shou-Lao he plunged his hands into the brazier containing the dragon's immortal heart and it charged him with the power of the Iron Fist .
Avengers vs. X-Men
When Cyclops and the X-Men were fighting the Avengers in K'un-Lun, Hope and the Thunderer came riding upon the dragon Shao Lao, who blasted Cyclops with its fire. Unfortunately, the dragon was far too young to put up a fight and its riders were dislodged. However, Hope was able to unleash a combination of dragon energy, fire and chaos magic to banish Cyclops to the Moon.
