At the southwest end of Tainan County, Anding borders Sanhua and Sinshih at the eat and Sipuliao of Sigang Township at the west, Sigang and Madou Townships at the west as divided by Zengwun Creek, and the Annan District of Tainan City at the south. Spanning 31.85 square kilometers across northeasterly and southwesterly, Anding is part of the Jianan Plain. Three to five kilometers above the sea level, the expanse of farm field, going down a gentle slop east-westerly, is flat without significant geological variation.

 The History
Anding was once the land of the Tackalan tribe dwelled by the Sirayas of Backloan. Ming Dynasty, the Hans settled in this area and built a port at Litoubiao (犁頭標社, also a branch of Tackalan tribe at the east of Anding Township) along the Taijiang Inland Sea. The Taijiang Wharf was a main transportation route throughout the period till the begging of Qing Dynasty. During that time, Sampans carrying grains, sugar, and other goods for trade entered this area through this port all the way into the inland.
    Tackalan comes from the language of the Syrayas, meaning the “port of dry grass”. Most part of Tackalan tribe is in the area of Anding Township (Tainan County); only a small portion lies in Sanhua Township. Before Taijiang Inland Sea became a piece of land, Tackalan was a fishing wharf. In the third year of the Daoguang Period of Qing Dynasty (1823), Cengwen Creek (Wanli Creek at that time) flooded the area and changed course at the west side of the Sucuojia Village. Mud washed away from the creeks filled in the inland sea and Taijiang diapered ever since. Of course, the wharf of Tackalan disappeared with it and Tackalan tribe became a farming village. In the 9th year of the Republic Era (1920), this area was rename as Anding Village due to the new administration zoning and the name of Anding Township was carry on after the world war till today.
