Chandaḥkalpataru (छन्दःकल्पतरु) is the name of a work ascribed to Rāghava Jhā related to the topics of Sanskrit prosody (chandas) but having an unknown period of composition.

The identification of the author is unknown. As its lone manuscript is procured in the Bihar & Odisha Research Society, Mithilā, it is understood that he would be from that area and his surname jhā also speaks the same. Introducing himself as the author Rāghava Jhā praises Lord Gaṇeśa and Kṛṣṇa in the invocatory verse of the work.
