The Tainan District Court was established in October 1895 during the Japanese occupation period. A court in Tainan was designated under the Governor's Office Court Organization in Taiwan. The court's governing area once covered from Chiayi and Yunlin in the north to Fengshan and Penghu in the south. The court's title was changed to Taiwan Tainan District Court after Taiwan's Restoration in 1945. The organization was also changed based on The Court Organization Act and The Rules Governing the Functions and Assignments of District Court, and its administrative supervision is directly under Taiwan High Court. Later, Kaohsiung, Chiayi, and Yunlin set up their own courts in 1945, 1947, and 1964 respectively. Thus the governing area of this court was reduced to Tainan County and Tainan City only. There are six areas in Tainan City. (i.e. East, Central-West, South, North, Anping and Annan) There are two special municipalities, seven towns, twenty-two townships, and the governing area totals 2176 square kilometers with a population of about one million and seven hundred and ten thousand (1,710,000).
The old office of the court at Fu Chien Road was built in 1912 and was planned for demolition and rebuilding because it was old and small. However, it was rated a Class Two Monument by the Ministry of Interior and thus cannot be demolished according to the law. Thus a new site was found on Chien Kang Road. The building project began in 1995 and increased over the years. In order to use resources most efficiently, the Summary Court and General Court of Tainan are also located in the same building. The new building of this courtcovers an area of 39,060m2 (11,816 pings) and the floor area is 59,652.83m2(18,045 pings). It is a new type steel structure office building with two basement levels and eleven floors above ground. The new building is magnificent and stately and it has become a premier and representative court building here in Taiwan. In order to make both facilities complement each other, the detailed planning is focused on construction of a modern court building, while the concept is based on "humanity, information, art and service" for a brand new court image. It is hoped to realize a new image of a court using a broadened vision so as to achieve the goal of service to local citizens. Implementing the idea of "convenience, courtesy, and consideration for the people" allows the court service quality to be upgraded and strives for the goal of "justice for the people."
This court insists on the idea of service for the people to offer faster and higher quality service to citizens and other court service users. Also, in order to implement the concept of "convenience, courtesy, and consideration for the people", we propose the following policy as the framework and direction of our service for the people:

A Court that provides Information

The public area planning of the court's internal building is an art exhibition space for people who come to our court during business hours or court session to appreciate art. Furthermore, art exerts a favorable influence both physically and mentally. Using art as a metaphor for turn hostility into harmony, the court hopes to mediate disputes so as to achieve the goal of no criminal sentences.
