Vastu Shastra is a traditional Indian school of thought that deals with the systems of architecture of the Indian origin. Vastu Shastra translates to ‘The Science of Architecture’. Vastu Shastra is nothing but the renowned texts found on the Indian subcontinent that define the principles of design, structure, layout, ground preparation, measurements, geometry etc.

The Pooja Ghar, also known as a Shrine, is an essential aspect of Indian Hindu Homes.A Hindu family is considered incomplete without the presence of a Pooja Ghar. The size of the room doesn't matter as long as there is a dedicated space to keep your Brass God Idols and worship them daily.

The Pooja room is a sacred space and needs to be a place that oozes out a positive aura that can help you get into the zone for meditation and chanting. Vastu Shastra is the science of architecture that was mentioned to us in the Ayurveda. According to Vastu Shastra, your Pooja rooms must be capable of harnessing the positive energies and flushing out the negative vibes.

Many people believe that Vastu Shastra only pertains to the construction and design aspects of a property. However, Vastu Shastra is very much applicable to the interior of your homes. Even the Brass Pooja Chowki  in your house must be kept in line with the Vastu Shastra’s school of thought. It is believed that if your home is constructed as per Vastu rules, but you fail to incorporate the same practices in the interior decoration of your house, then it could create an imbalance in the overall positivity in your home.

Here are some ways to set up a Pooja Ghar is cognizance with all the deities.


If you’re the person that performs Pooja in the house every day, you must ensure that the course of your face is towards the east. This helps in creating positive energies that can manifest easily if the protocols are followed correctly.

Design of the Shrine

Ideally, your shrine should have a low ceiling. Some believers of Hinduism like to keep the roof in the shape of a pyramid. The pyramid shape or gopura-like top helps in attracting positive energies. While planning a house, you must always keep in mind that you will need space for a Pooja Ghar that will continuously be prevailing with positive energy flows. There are other things to remember while setting up your shrine. You need to make sure the area of the Pooja Ghar receives constant sunlight and fresh air. It is disrespectful to keep idols in the darkness. It is also believed that with light, positive energies flow cohesively.

Idol Placement

While deciding the positioning for your Brass Idols for the shrine, you must make sure that you are placing the idols one inch away from the walls on all sides. These idols must be kept away from the walls at all times. You must not have portraits or pictures depicting violence in the Pooja room as it creates disrespect for the Gods.
