Wenshan District (zh-tpw|t=文山區|p=Wénshān Qū|w=Wen-shan Chü) is the southernmost of the twelve districts of
Taipei City. The district was formed in 1990by combining Jingmeiand Muzha. "Wenshan" previously referred to the region south of Taipei Basin(including Xindian and Pinglin).
Notable attractions in this district include the
Taipei Zoo, Maokong(貓空), Jingmei Night Market, Xianji Rock (仙跡岩). The Examination Yuanand the National Chengchi Universityare also in this district.
Although Wenshan is in Taipei city, it seems rather remote at first sight; surrounded by mountains, many people find it is a good place to escape downtown Taipei. On weekends, many people drive to Maokong to enjoy one of the area's numerous teahouses and to breathe the fresh air.
The mountains in Wenshan are ideal for people to exercise on the hiking trails. The Taipei Zoo is often jammed by adults and children alike, especially during summer vacation. It is anticipated that the zoo may have pandas in the future.Fact|date=January 2008 After the construction of the MRT, it became easier to travel to Wenshan from other districts. Wenshan District also contains the city mayor's residence.
