Khanskaya is a township in the city district of Maikop in Adygeya.

Its population makes 11 549 people (as of 2013).

The village was named after Khansky (i.e. Khans) Ford that existed even before it appeared on the Belaya River. As a local legend goes, the river Khanka was named so because a residence of the Crimean Khan used to stand on its bank.

The township stands on the right bank of River Belaya, 12 km to the north-west of downtown Maikop, and 12 km to the south of Belorechensk.

It has the Khanskaya Railway station on the line Belorechensk Hadzhokh and regular bus service to Maikop and Belorechensk.

Khanskaya was founded as a Cossack village on October 20, 1862 and was part of the Maikop District of the Kuban Region.
