construction according to Vastu Shastra

Starting construction while adhering to Vastu Shastra principles involves careful planning and attention to the alignment, layout, and placement of various elements of the building. Vastu Shastra is an ancient Indian architectural and design philosophy that aims to create harmony between the environment and the structure. Here are some essential steps to begin construction in accordance with Vastu:

Selection of Land:

Choose a plot of land that is regular in shape, preferably square or rectangular.

Ensure the land is free from obstructions, such as large rocks, trees, or other structures.

Avoid purchasing land near cemeteries, temples, or places with negative energies.


Orient the building to face the cardinal directions (North, South, East, or West) for maximum energy flow. East-facing homes are often considered favorable.

The entrance should ideally be in the northeast, north, or east direction.

Layout and Design:

Design the layout with balanced rooms and open spaces.

Place the kitchen in the southeast corner, the master bedroom in the southwest, and the children’s room in the northwest.

Avoid having bedrooms in the northeast corner.


Ensure the foundation is level and strong, as it is the base of the entire structure.

Use auspicious materials like wood and stone for the foundation.

Construction Materials:

Select high-quality, natural materials for construction, such as wood, marble, or granite.

Avoid using damaged or substandard materials.


The main entrance door should be well-lit and welcoming.

Avoid a cluttered entrance, and keep it free from obstructions.

Ventilation and Light:

Incorporate ample windows and ventilation in the design to allow the free flow of air and natural light.

Avoid blocking windows with obstacles or tall structures.

Pooja Room:

If possible, include a dedicated pooja (prayer) room in the northeast or north of the house.

Install the deity or sacred items facing east.

Water Elements:

Place water sources like wells, tanks, or fountains in the northeast or north direction.

Ensure proper drainage systems to prevent stagnation of water.

Avoid Negative Energy:

Avoid mirrors facing the bed or main entrance, as they can reflect negative energy.

Keep the toilet away from the northeast and kitchen from the northeast and southwest corners.

Seek Professional Guidance:

Consult a Vastu expert or architect well-versed in Vastu Shastra principles for guidance and advice specific to your construction project.
