It is home to most of the national government buildings of the Republic of China (Taiwan), including the Presidential Office, the Executive Yuan, the Control Yuan, the Legislative Yuan, the Judicial Yuan and various government ministries.


The district is named after Generalissimo and the late President of the Republic of China Chiang Kai-shek.
