Beilin District (simplified Chinese: 碑林区; traditional Chinese: 碑林區; pinyin: Bēilín Qū) is one of nine districts of Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi province, China. The well-known Small Wild Goose Pagoda is also located in the district. The smallest, but most densely-populated,[2] of Xi'an's county-level divisions, it borders the districts of Xincheng to the northeast, Yanta to the south, and Lianhu to the northwest.

Beilin comprises the area bordered on the west by the intersection of South Laodong Road 南劳动路 with Lianhu District 莲湖区, on the east by the intersections of East Second Ring Road 东二环路 and Huoju Road 火炬路 with New City District 碑林区, on the south by the intersection of South Second Ring Road 南二环路 with the Goose Pagoda District 雁塔区, and on the north by the intersections of Fengqing Road 丰庆路, South Huancheng Road 南环城路, Greater Baoji Lane 大保吉巷, South Guangji Street 南广济街, and West Great Street 西大街 with Lianhu District 莲湖区.
