The Old District was more commonly known as the "depths of Coruscant" or "the underworld". It was a haven for the homeless and fugitives on Coruscant. During the Yuuzhan Vong War, it was also a haven to the Shamed Ones of the Yuuzhan Vong.


The Old District is believed to be the first development of Coruscant though some historians believe there was development further down.
