10 Essential Tips To Design Your Pooja Room According To Vastu Shastra



When we buy a house, the first person we thank is God. That’s because we feel from within that an entity like God has helped us reach where we are today. In order to keep his blessings carried forward along with us always, we decide on the puja room design where we plan to situate God. The puja room design is one of the main room designs in the entire house.

When choosing the puja room design, multiple things must be considered. Such as the direction has to be correct in the puja room design. It doesn’t have to be too bright or bold, but the puja room design should also give holy and calming vibes. Other things used should combine and complement the puja room design with the puja room design.

There’s so much more to understand about how exactly the puja room design should be; hence, we have a list of 10 tips to choose the design wisely, according to Vaastu Shastra.

1. Choose the door design well.

Pooja Ghar doors, when designed, keep in mind that they should have two shutters that are the same size and, as far as possible, made of wood. In addition, the doors can be embellished with a certain number of different metals.

2. Pick the direction correctly

The northeast of the house is the best place for the mandir. If not, you can also use the north and east corners. If nothing else works, the west is also okay. However, the pooja room should not be found in the south.

3. Face in the correct direction while praying

When you set up your pooja room, make sure that you sit in it with your back to the north or east so that you can offer prayers. Surya Dev explains this because the sun rises in the east, and its rays are regarded as a blessing from the sun.

4. Keep it on the ground floor.

For the best results, place the pooja ghar on the ground floor of your house. According to Vastu, mandirs should not be located in basements or on upper floors.

5. No two idols should face each other.

In an ideal world, the idols in the mandir should not face each other. They should also be oriented in the northeast instead of in the front of the door or wall. Finally, the idols should always be pointing in the direction of your home because this indicates that they have grace or protection over you.

6. Look at what you keep in the room.

In the pooja room, avoid paintings that depict violence or images of the deceased. Vastu colours like white, light blue, yellow, or other subtle, calming hues are ideal for pooja rooms.

7. Place the lighting well

When placing lamps, Agni Kund, or diyas, ensure they face southeast. Make an effort to put the diyas in the mandir’s centre. Lamps can also be positioned in the south corners, facing either the north or the east.

8. Choose the colours wisely.

Lighting When adding lights to the design of your pooja ghar, use soft colours rather than bright ones. It’s a good idea to use soft colours like white, powder blue, pastel yellow, or sunshine yellow.

9. Check the placement. 

The mandir can be placed in the kitchen or living room, but you should make sure it faces northeast. Having a mandir in the bedroom is a bad idea. But if you have to, put it in the bedroom’s northeast corner.

10. What vessels should be used?

Copper is considered auspicious, so copper vessels are used in the pooja ghar.In addition, it is common knowledge in Vastu Shastra that some metals are good for our health, and copper is one of those metals. Therefore, consuming water stored in copper containers is also beneficial to health.
