A Puja room apart from being a divine place is also the epicenter of positive energy in our homes. Due to various, so called ‘practical reasons’, Vastu is often sidelined in modern homes. As per Vastu Shastra ‘your space of worship harnesses positive vibes and spreads them throughout the home.’ 

Vastu Shastra: Introduction to the Ancient wisdom 

According to Hinduism, it is believed that Vastu-complaint homes are free from ‘dosha’. Vastu Shastra has its roots in the Sthapatya Veda which is a part of Atharvaveda. It has been part of the Indian culture for thousands of years and people still seek advice from the Vastu experts before buying or building a property. The architecture and interiors of all ancient temples and palaces are entirely designed, based on this ancient science. 

According to the mythological legends, Vastu is a demon or evil energy who worshiped the God Brahma and earned a boon. It spurred an insatiable hunger that led him on the path of devastating the gods. He invaded them to consume their powers to be more destructive to the world. He fell on the earth and his organs rolled off in different directions. 

Vastu experts draft a grid diagram and suggest tips to keep negative vibrations at bay. In the ancient days, Vastu Shastra was confined to the Sthapathis (architects) only and was later passed on to the masses. 

Vastu Tips to Surround Your Home with Positive Vibes


To create an auspicious aura in your place of worship, the location of the room that holds the most significance is the northeast. The Puja Ghar should be facing the northeast direction. Moreover, it shouldn’t be in the basement or on the upper floor of your home. Always reserve the ground level to design your temple to maximize the positive energy. 


Should your Puja Ghar have doors? Is it right to veil your gods? These are common things that put you in a dilemma. For the remediation of Vastu doshas, it is advisable to put two doors at the Mandir’s entrance. Single door Puja Ghar interferes with your focus during meditation. Your idols shouldn’t be aligned in a manner where they face each other.
