Hunnan District (simplified Chinese: 浑南区; traditional Chinese: 渾南區; pinyin: Húnnán Qū), formerly Dongling District (东陵区; 東陵區; Dōnglíng Qū) one of ten districts of the prefecture-level city of Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning Province, Northeast China, and forms part of the eastern and southeastern suburbs. The district contains 12 subdistricts of Shenyang proper, six towns, one rural township, and one ethnic rural township. It borders Shenbei New Area to the north, Sujiatun to the south, Heping to the west, and Shenhe and Dadong to the northwest; it also borders the prefecture-level city of Fushun to the east.

The former name Dongling refers to the Eastern Tomb, or Fuling Tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is in fact two Qing dynasty tombs: of Nurhachi, the first emperor of Qing.

The district is rapidly becoming a developed, high-end residential area. There are two corridors along two major highways, one leading to the Eastern Tomb and Fushun, the other leading to the Shenyang Taoxian International Airport, along which one can see luxury apartments and sleek commercial development.
