Pampady is a small hamlet in Kottayam District and is 16 km east of Kottayam town.

Pampady was under the rule of Thekkumkoor kings up to middle of 16th century. Pampady had three portions - Velloor, Pampady and Thekkan Pampady. Velloor was owned by Kaithamattom Illam. Vennimala, on the western boundary of Pampady, was once the capital of Thekkumkoor. King Marthanda Varma of Venadu captured Thekkumkoor in 1749 and it became the portion of Travancore.

The literal meaning of Pampady is ‘Ananthasayanan,’ the Land of Lord Vishnu, as per Malayalam Dictionary –'Sabthatharavaly.' Another view is that the name was derived from Payampady - area where water is available.

Public Library, Government Engineering College and Rubco Rubber factory are other interest around Pampady.
