 History

Yujing was called Taivoan during the Dutch occupation and the Qing Dynasty. Four tribes of the Cao aboriginal people lived there: the Tapani, the Voung Voungor, the Siiaoli, and the Qieba. Afterwards, when the Syraya Tribe of Damujiang (the modern town of Sinhua) suffered encroachments by the Chinese during the Zheng Chenggong period, they reacted by driving out the four tribes of the Cao people. In the first year of the Yongzheng Emperor of the Qing Dynasty (1723), the Chinese built a settlement. In the ninth year of the Republic of China (Taisho 9 for the Japanese, 1920 in the Western calendar), under the Japanese occupation, they adopted the name "Yujing," which is pronounced "Tamai" in Japanese, similar to the aboriginal tribal designation "Tapani." This name has been used ever since. During the time of the Japanese occupation, it was Yujing village, Sinhua prefecture, Tainan province. A local chief was installed in Yujing. After the return of Taiwan to China, it became the town of Yujing.
