Shalu District (Chinese: 沙鹿區; pinyin: Shālù Qū) is a suburban district in central Taichung City, Taiwan.

History[edit]

Originally a settlement of the Papora people, this region was named 沙轆社. During the Kingdom of Tungning (1662-1683), the Taiwanese Plains Aborigines were driven away or sinicized, and the area became a Han settlement. In 1731 during Qing rule, Tamsui Subprefecture (淡水廳) extended from the Tai-kah River northward up to Kelang (雞籠; Keelung).

In 1920, during Japanese rule, the written name was changed to Sharoku (沙鹿). Administratively, Sharoku was under Taikō District (大甲郡), Taichū Prefecture. In Taiwanese Hokkien, the old name (Soa-la̍k) is still used.

In 1945 the village was changed to an township, and was upgraded to a district in 2010.
