Vaastu Shastra

One should be very careful before taking any decision. Some basic points I have already told, now the main things that one should consider are.

  1. Orientation of plot.

  2. Four side angles of the plot in respect to orientation.

  • The length of the plot should be more in North-South direction as compared to East-West direction.


  • If all the corner angles of plot are 90 degrees , it is a good plot.
  • The gowmukha plot is one which is narrower at the entrance and becomes broader as we go in. It is very auspicious.
  • A plot with all corners 90 degrees having two sides’ road front and back is a good plot.
  • A plot with four corners having 90 degrees angles with three sides of four side’s road is a very good plot.
  • If the house is projected in any of the either directions, then one should always consider the following rules.
  • The North/East projection is good and is recommended.

  • The South/East , South/West and North/West projections are not the good sites and are not recommended according to vastu but if one has already has this kind of plot , it can be corrected.
  • If you are seeing the plot which is cut on either direction , then it is not recommended.
  • Now if the plot angles are not at 90 degree , be sure about it whether it is ‘shermukha plot’ or ‘gowmukha plot’.

The shermukha plot is one which has a broader entrance and it becomes narrower as we go in. It is NOT at all recommended for the residence.

Usually people believe that South facing plot is not good ,this and that these are all myths ,it entirely depends upon the full orientation ,. The entrance of the house depends on the zodiac sign of the owner. It is as follows.

  1. Kark ( Cancer)
    Virchak (Scorpio ) EAST facing plot
    Meen (Pisces)

  2. Mithun Gemini)
    Kanya ( Virgo) SOUTH facing plot
    Makar (Pisces)

  3. Rishab ( Taurus)
    Tula (Libra) WEST facing plot
    Kumbh ( Aquarius)

  4. Mesh ( Aries)
    Singh (Leo) NORTH facing plot
    Dhanu ( Sagittarius)

We can categorize the doors in seven different categories , each of them is discussed below.

The front door is usually the most eye catching feature of a house. The entrance door should need to be in relation to the style of their surroundings. Whether viewed from inside or outside, they become an integral part of a home's design. They can vary from modern glass door to gothic style, from multi paneled to arched door.

Interior doors help to connect rooms and sometime it varies from simple flush door to traditional and glass doors. Interior doors need not be impenetrable barriers, frosted or beveled glass doors allow the sunshine to come yet seal off the noise and the view.

A glass door design should reflect the sensuous sophistication and detailed elegance. Decorative glass is a very good option to door units. Whether it is stained, beveled, etched, mirrored, painted or sand blasted, they can turn the door into a work of art. The patterned glass panels diffuse the light and fill the room with a bright but less intense glow.

These doors are impressive for their intricate and bold surfaces. They can withstand hard use in both interior and exterior application. Copper, bronze, brass and pewter are the metal finish for the door.

In classical designer houses, the door is treated as a showpiece, thus carved decorations are seen here. With these doors, elegance and permanence are a reality, not just a façade. These highly ornamented carved wooden panels are originally intended for a grand house.

These doors can be elaborately molded and exuberantly carved, painted and glided. These doors cope well with most weather conditions and need virtually no maintenance. In these doors, a distinct impact is created through fine joinery and sensitive use of material and design.

French or sliding doors help link living space and garden while doubling as view walls. A sense of accessibility is always achieved through these doors.
