Cijin District[Note 1] (Chinese: 旗津; Hanyu Pinyin: Qíjīn Qū; Tongyong Pinyin: Cíjin Cyu; Wade–Giles: Chʻi²-chin¹ Chʻü¹; Hokkien POJ: Kî-tin-khu) is a district of Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, covering Cijin Island[Note 2] (旗津島[18]) and islands in the South China Sea. It is the second smallest district in Kaohsiung City after Yancheng District.


Area that later became Cijin Island shown as part of Takao Prefecture then under Japanese rule during World War II (AMS, 1945)

Cijin forms the original core of the Kaohsiung, which was established by the fisherman Hsu Ah-hua (徐阿華) 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, Tsai, Lee, Pai, and Pan families and an idol of the Chinese sea goddess Ma-tsu. This was housed in a bamboo and thatch structure that formed the first Cijin Tianhou Temple. The town grew up around the temple grounds.[20]

HMS Reynard was wrecked near Pratas Island on May 31, 1851.

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.


Cijin Island is 8.5 km (5.3 mi) long with an average width of 400 m (1,300 ft).[10]

Two islands and one reef in the South China Sea are administered by Kaohsiung City as parts of Cijin District:[21][22][15]
