Ksani (Georgian: ქსანი, Ossetian: Чысандон, Chysandon, Template:Land-ru) is a small river in central Georgia, which rises on the southern slopes of the Greater Caucasus Mountain Range in South Ossetia and flows into the Kura River. Ksani (both the river and the name) is often associated with the Medieval Georgian Ksani Fortress which lies close to the Ksani River.
