pancha pANdavas came on a thIrtha yAthrA to dhakshiNa bhAratham and visited this town which was part of madhurai (south) kingdom. arjuna married chithrAngathA (the daughter of the king). He also named this town after her mother’s name (kunthI). Eventually, it became to be known as konthagai.
thiruvAimozhi piLLai was born in this town and eventually moved to AzhwArthirunagari and became the leader of srIvaishNava sampradhAyam. He renovated the AzhwArthirunagari AdhinAthar/AzhwAr temple, constructed bhavishyadhAchAryan temple and re-established the temple norms after the temple was buried in forest for a long time during mughal invasion.
