History edit

The name “Guting” is derived from the ancient place name Ku-ting (Min Nan Chinese: Kóo-tîng).

After Taihoku City was established in 1920, in 1922, the Japanese Colonial Government carried out the Correction of Villages' Name (町名改正, chōmei kaisei). There were 11 villages (, chō) in the area of later Guting District: Shineichō (新榮町), Chitosechō (千歳町), Kodamachō (兒玉町), Sakumachō (佐久間町), Nanmonchō (南門町), Ryūkōchō (龍口町), Babachō (馬場町), Kawabatachō (川端町), Koteichō (古亭町), Suidōchō (水道町) and Tomitachō (富田町).

In 1946, the Taiwan Province Administrative Official Public Ministry (臺灣省行政長官公署) made those villages incorporated as Guting District.

In 1990, 16 districts in Taipei City were consolidated into the current 12 districts. Most of Guting District were merged into Zhongzheng District (中正區) along with Chengzhong District (城中區), moreover the rest were annexed into Daan District (大安區) and Wanhua District (萬華區).
