- Taipei City Government
- The city is situated in a basin in northern Taiwan that was originally inhabited by aboriginal peoples, until settlers from China moved into the area about 300 years ago. The first permanent settlements were in the present-day districts of Wanhua and Datong, in western Taipei. These areas still retain many of their old customs, as visitors can readily see in the architecture, sculptures, and ceremonial activities that take place in the old streets and temples.
