The Shezhuang Temple (simplified Chinese: 社庄庙; traditional Chinese: 社莊廟; pinyin: Shèzhuāng Miào) is a Taoist temple in the Jinqiao district of Shanghai, China.

A building of fine Chinese architecture, the temple was originally surrounded by an old village that was demolished in the late 2000s to make space for new developments.
