Zhong County or Zhongxian (simplified Chinese: 忠县; traditional Chinese: 忠縣; pinyin: Zhōng Xiàn), formerly named Linjiang (临江)[1] is a county of Chongqing Municipality in China.

The Shibaozhai Temple, which is endangered by the rising waters caused by the Three Gorges Dam, is located there.

Zhong County has two Yangtze River crossings: the Zhongxian Yangtze River Bridge and Zhongzhou Yangtze River Bridge.
