You should also make sure that the doors and windows of the pooja room open to the north or west. With this, if we talk about deepak and incense then its south east 'disha' (direction). Tambe ka pot (copper pot) during worship is considered very good.

Establishment of god in pooja room ( statues and photos of god )

Just as the pooja room should be as per vastu, in the same way the 'murtis' (god's statue) should also be according to vastu. You should keep the murtis in such a way that they Face towards the north or east. Keep a little gap in between the walls and murtis. The area should be kept clean and tidy, so that a positive atmosphere is maintained. Apart from this, while planning the temple at home, arrangements should be made to drive out the smoke that comes from incense sticks.

  • Make sure murtis are not in front of another.
  • Keep murtis high
  • Keep the door at least an inch away.
  • The diya and incense should be placed right i.e. towards east south.
  • Never keep a damaged murti.

Along with this, the colours also carry some meaning and also represent the element of the work. When these colours are made according to the vastu in the house, then this house acts as a sign of sanctity.

According to vastu, white, light yellow and blue are considered to be the best colours for a pooja room. These colours have their own significance, white is a symbol of purity, so there the blue colour works to bring calm. Purple and dark colours should be avoided.

Lighting arrangements for pooja room according to vastu

As you all know that temple is a place for home, which should be well illuminated according to ' Vastu Shastra '. According to the Hindu tradition, the bottom heart is used to illuminate the house and remove oppression. Their light is a source of positive energy and it is very important to be the animal's source of natural light.

Let me tell you that the side should always be illuminated and raised so you can also use warm lights, which can be used to light after sunset.

Pooja room's door according to vastu

The temple of the house spreads the holy energy to the house through the door of the paw. The door of the side should be made in the direction of vastu so that you get good luck in your life.

The side should have only one door and a temple without the door is considered as the other room of the house. Simultaneously, while selecting the door, wood should be considered as the primary material and ensure that the side has only one door. Yes, keep insects (mainly spiders) away from the temple.

Pooja room accessories according to vastu

There is such a place of worship where God resides, so it should be avoided to keep dustbins at this place. Also, according to vastu, it shows adverse conditions like death of animals, war etc. Wall picture should not be kept at this place. If you want to keep water here, then use a copper vessel it is considered to be good.

Why is it wrong to make temples in the south-west?

It is believed that on making a temple on the south-west side of the house, many ill-effects are usually seen. The south-west corner of the house is completely opposite from the north-west corner, so the area here is not considered good for worshipping goddesses.

It is believed that the south-west corner is designated for pitra (paternal) and god 'Vishwakarma' worship according to vastu. So it helps your ability to increase and improve meditation, but should not establish any other deity at this place because in ' Vastu Shastra ' it is believed that if the temple of other deities is built in this condition, then people will get financial harm and they might have to face it.

As well as those who have business they can experience big losses or can also cause some kind of loss. Therefore, one should establish pitra or god Vishkarma in the south-west corner of the house and the worship related to him can be shown in this situation, but it is not considered appropriate to build a temple in this situation.

If you take care of these special things while making a temple in your home, then it is sure that there will be prosperity and positive energy in your house as well as the people of the house will also be happy.
