It was part of the state of Shu until the third century BC, and was incorporated into the Qin Empire following the unification of China under Qin Shihuang.In the early Yuan dynasty, it was named Jianzhou. It adopted the name Jianyang County after 1913 during the Republic of China. After the foundation of the People's Republic of China, it was incorporated into the Neijiang Administration Zone. It was divided into communes during the Cultural Revolution. When the communes were abolished, it was re-organized under Chengdu. In 1994, the county was converted into a county-level city. In 2007, the county was given broad autonomy over its budgeting and financial affairs by the State Council as part of a wider experiment.AdministrationAlthough administered by the prefecture-level city of Ziyang, in practice Jianyang is economically integrated as a part of the greater Chengdu metropolitan area, and is home to some commuters who work in Chengdu.
