(Chinese: 西塘; pinyin: Xītáng) is an ancient scenic town in Jiashan County, Zhejiang Province, China.

Xitang is level, densely distributed with rivers, and has a very quiet natural environment. With nine rivers converging at this town, dividing it into eight sections, there are many stone bridges linking it together.

In the older section of town, all the buildings face onto the canals, the true transportation system of the area.
Xitang contains numerous older residences and old temples such as Seventh Master's Temple. Xitang preserves a tranquil ambience and scenic beauty.
