Beichen District (simplified Chinese: 北辰区; traditional Chinese: 北辰區; pinyin: Běichén Qū) is a district of the municipality of Tianjin, People's Republic of China. Before June 1992, the district was named Beijiao District (simplified Chinese: 北郊区; traditional Chinese: 北郊區; pinyin: Běijiāo Qū; literally: 'north suburb'), reflectings its position in the northern suburbs of Tianjin. As the city expanded, it gradually became part of the urban core and was renamed to Beichen.
