Cijin District[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8] (Chinese: ?; Hanyu Pinyin: Qíj?n Q?; Tongyong Pinyin: Cíjin Cyu; Wade-Giles: Ch?i²-chin¹ Ch?ü¹; Hokkien POJ: Kî-tin-khu) is a district of Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, covering Cijin Island and islands in the South China Sea. It is the second smallest district in Kaohsiung City after Yancheng District.


Cijin as part of the Japanese Takao Prefecture

Cijin forms the original core of the Kaohsiung, which was established by the fisherman Hsu Ah-hua () in the mid-17th century. He realized the attractiveness of the location when he was forced to seek shelter from a typhoon in the Taiwan Strait and returned with settlers from the Hung, Wang, Cai, Li, Bai, and Pan families and an idol of the Chinese sea goddess Mazu. This was housed in a bamboo and thatch structure that formed the first Chi Jin Mazu Temple. The town grew up around the temple grounds.[9]

Cijin Island was once connected to the mainland at the southern tip, but in 1967, this link was severed to create a second entry point to the Port of Kaohsiung.


Two islands and one reef in the South China Sea are administered by Kaohsiung City as parts of Cijin District:[10][11][7]
