West Pagoda (Chinese: 西塔; pinyin: Xī Tǎ) is a Tibetan Buddhist temple located in Heping District, Shenyang, Liaoning Province, People's Republic of China.

The temple was built in 1640—1645, as one of the "Four Pagodas of Early Qing" (Chinese: 清初四塔; pinyin: Qīngchū Sì Tǎ). It was destroyed in 1968 during the Cultural Revolution, but was rebuilt in 1998. The area around West Pagoda (Korean: 서탑) is a Koreatown, where many Korean Chinese live.[1][2]
