Anding District (Chinese: 安定區; pinyin: Āndìng Qū; Wade–Giles: An1-ting4 Ch'ü1; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: An-tēng khu) is a rural district of about 30,298 residents in Tainan, Taiwan.

History[edit]

During the Dutch colonial era the area was known as Bakloan[1] or Baccloan,[2] with a rarer spelling of Baccaluang. The village was one of four main aboriginal villages near the Dutch base of Tayouan, with around 1,500 inhabitants.[3] It was located about 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) northeast of the Dutch base at Fort Zeelandia.
