Wanhua District (Chinese: 萬華區; pinyin: Wànhúa Qū; Wade–Giles: Wan-hua Chü; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Báng-kah-khu), known in Taiwanese as Bangka a.k.a. Monga, is Taipei City's oldest district. The district is home to historic buildings such as Longshan Temple, Taipei's oldest temple, and the Red House Theater, the first and largest teahouse and playhouse in Taiwan. Taipei's oldest, but decaying, garment district is also here.
Famous quotes containing the word district:
“Most works of art, like most wines, ought to be consumed in the district of their fabrication.”
