Vaikunda Perumal Temple

#6 of 8 things to do in Kanchipuram

An epitome of Dravidian architecture, The Vaikunda Perumal temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The inscriptions on the walls of this temple carry in them a very important part of our history. They talk about the Kudavolai system, where the villagers of that time had asked the rulers that they wanted to choose their own representatives.

This is seen as the beginning of and the inspiration for today's system of Panchayati Raj.
