Until 2016, Kunyang was a town, and the county seat of Jinning County. Due to the increasing urbanization of the area, the county was renamed into a district, and its towns, including Kunyang, became subdistricts.
Kunyang is the birthplace of Chinese explorer Zheng He, who is now commemorated by a series of memorials in Zheng He Park, on top of Kunyang's Moon Mountain (Yue Shan).
Kunyang contains some of the largest phosphorus resources in Yunnan which in turn has the largest in China.
