Muzha District

Muzha (Chinese: 木柵; pinyin: Mùzhà; Wade–Giles: Mu4-cha4; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Ba̍k-sa) was a district in Taipei City. The historical spelling of the area is Mucha. In 1990, it merged with Jingmei to form the Wenshan District.

During Japanese rule, Muzha belonged to Neihu (內湖) of Shenkeng Village (深坑莊, currently Shenkeng District of New Taipei City). To defend against aborigine attacks, the civilians built wooden fences in the region, hence the name Muzha (lit. "wood fence").

Later, after World War II, it, as well as Jingmei, became districts of Taipei City.
