Guanghan (simplified Chinese: 广汉; traditional Chinese: 廣漢; pinyin: Guǎnghàn) is a county-level city in Deyang, Sichuan province, China, and only 23 kilometres (14 miles) from Chengdu. The predominant industries are tourism, pharmaceuticals and the supply of building material.
Guanghan has an area of 538 km2 (208 sq mi), a population of 590,000, with urban population of 170,000. A major part of the tourism is the nearby Sanxingdui ruins. The striking exhibits at the Sānxīngduī Museum highlight archaeological finds that some Chinese archaeologists regard as even more important than Xī'ān's Terracotta Warriors.
The region is steadily becoming more industrialised and that is helping with the progression of agriculture and enhances the region's development.
