"Kumbhe Punarvasau Jaatam Kerale Cholapattane
Kaustubhaamsham Dharaadheesham Kulesekharmarshraye!"

This is a very interesting question, and I look forward to learning from the
discussion on Perumal Thirumozhi.

My mother has a Telegu book called "Azhwarula Divya Vaibhavam," which was
written by Thiruvaypatti Raghaviah for Tirumala Devasthanam's religious
series.  In it, Azhwar is said to have been born in Kollinagaram to one Raja
Dhridavratha of Chandra Vamsam.  According to some Malayali friends of ours,
this could refer to Kodinallur in Kerala; but, they also are not sure about
this.

Daasanu Daasan,

Mohan
