Shiding District (Chinese: 石碇區; Hanyu Pinyin: Shídìng Qū; Tongyong Pinyin: Shíhdìng Cyu; literally: "stone anchor") is a rural district in southern New Taipei City, Taiwan.

History[edit]

Shiding used to be a thriving town during the Qing Dynasty due to its geographically favorable condition as a resting place on the way to Yilan and its coal mine resources and tea trading. Shiding was a rural township of Taipei County until the upgrade of the county to become the New Taipei municipality on 25 December 2010, Shiding became a district.
