Chong Shen Monastery, (pinyin Chong Sheng Si, also known as SanTa Si, Tianlong Si), is a Buddhist monastery near the old town of Dali in Yunnan province, southern China. The Three Pagodas are part of the complex.

It was once the royal temple of the Kingdom of Dali. It was originally built in the 9th century, but was destroyed in a fire during the rule of the Qing Dynasty. The temple was later rebuilt in 2005.
