What Houzz contributors are saying:
34. Firm: Anil Dube ArchitectThis open puja space has a light visual impact due to the white walls and the tiny back-lit niches. The marble flooring offers enough area for a family member or two to be seated together. The tall plant offers a sense of tranquility to the setup.
OrientationThe first thing to keep in mind is the orientation for your pooja mandir. According to pooja room Vastu, the deity should ideally be placed anywhere between the north and the east side of the house and face the south or east, so that you face the rising sun as you pray in the morning. This gives you enough flexibility for placement if there are few options in terms of location – you need just make sure you face the right direction. This is the first and most important parameter, and once this is done, you are well on your way to the perfect prayer space.Tip: Carry a simple printout that guides you, according to Vastu, on the orientation and placement of various functions in your house. Align it with the north, using your smartphone, and you get a good idea of the ideal locations for the many functions within your home.
