Vaasthu Basics

Living Room:

The living room should be on the north side of the house.

Puja Room:

Worship should be done in the northeast, north, or east sides of the house. It is best that the temple room is in the northeast corner of the house. The worship room should not be to the south. The deities or pictures of the deities should either face east or west, and should not face north or south. It is best that the Deities face west and the worshipers face east.


 The kitchen should ideally be in the southeast corner of the house, its windows on the east and south sides. If the kitchen cannot be in the southeast corner, it is all right to place it in the northwest corner. Cooking should be done in the southeast corner or on the east side of the kitchen. It is best to cook while facing east, but facing north is also all right. It is advisable not to put the stove on the northern wall. The stove should not be in front of the kitchen’s door.


The main bedroom should be on the southwest or northwest side of the house. Bedrooms on the northeast side of the house will also cause trouble.One should sleep with his head facing east or south. One should never sleep with his head facing north.


Money, valuables, or a safe should be stored in a room on the north side of the house. This is the side of the god of wealth.


It is best to face east or west while eating. The head of the family should face east during meals. Other members of the family can face east, north, or west, but it is not advisable to face south.

  1. got a question.. i live in usa. our apartment is aligned in such a way that the corners become east, west, north, south and the walls become NE, SW, etc … In which direction should I place the deities to worship and in which direction should I sleep?

  2. You can keep your head in the NE while sleeping and can also place deities in the NE.
