Muzha

Muzha (Chinese: 木柵; pinyin: Mùzhà; Wade–Giles: Mu4-cha4; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Ba̍k-sa; literally: "wood fence") was a district in Taipei City, Taiwan. The historical spelling of the name is Mucha, which refers to wooden fences built in the region to defend against attacks by Taiwanese aborigines. In 1990, it merged with Jingmei District to create Wenshan District.

During Japanese rule, Muzha belonged to Naiko (内湖) and 坡內坑 of Shinkō Village (深坑庄) of Bunsan District (文山郡), Taihoku Prefecture.

After World War II, Muzha and Jingmei became districts of Taipei City.
