Uttaramerur is a small village next to Kanchipuram in South India. This village is a masterpiece of town-planning and architecture. All the deities that prescribed for a village can be found in Uttaramerur. Not only that, these deities are found in the exact positions in the village, as prescribed in the Shastras.
The Uttaramerur temple has a specialty. The stone inscriptions found in this temple talk about the electoral system. It is amazing to see how these inscriptions, which date back to thousands of years, lay down well-thought out and logical steps and instructions for the elections.
