Puja Room

Universe is one of the beautiful creation nature and everything stands alive only the limelight of truth just like every subject of human aspect is governed with rules and regulation & acts..

Puja Room Direction, According to Vaastu

  • The best location for the puja room  in the house is the north-east. If that doesn’t work for you, the north and the east corners will do too. West is permissible too, if nothing else works. However, avoid locating the pooja room in the south.
  • Try to ensure that you face the north or the east while offering prayers.
  • Don’t position the puja room under a staircase or against the wall of a bathroom — it is considered inauspicious.
  • Design the puja ghar on the ground floor of your home for best results. Basements and upper floors are not recommended for puja ghar  as per Vaastu.
  • Align the puja room along the north-east, east or north if you live in a north or east facing flat.

Puja Room Vaastu Design, Direction of Idols of God & Color

  • Idols in the puja room must not face each other or the door, and they must be located in the north-east ideally, not too close to the wall.
  • Don’t use the puja space for any other purpose, and avoid too much storage here. If you must have storage options, then place cupboards to the west or the south.
  • Ensure that the puja room doors and windows open out to the north or the east
  • Place lamps and agni kund in the south-east direction and ensure that the idols in the pooja room are not chipped or broken.
  • Use copper vessels in the puja room — it is considered auspicious.
  • Build a pyramid shaped tower for the puja space if you can, as it maximizes positive vibrations. A threshold to the pooja room also helps greatly, as per Vaastu.
  • The puja room door should have two shutters ideally, and preferably made of wood.
  • Avoid pictures of the deceased or paintings depicting violence in the pooja room.
  • White, light blue, yellow or other subtle soothing shades are good Vaastu colors for pooja rooms
