3Thriving Temple/ Pooja Room Location Ideas For Your House

Your pooja room – the place where your gods reside – should be the most pious location of your house. It is where the most progressive energy flows and then spreads through the house to elevate your life.

But where should the pooja room be located? 

The mandir/ temple of our house should be in a positive location. You see, we worship our gods with the intent to be successful in our day-to-day life, to show our gratitude and to make sure we get infused with the positive energy of the temple, so we can progress without much trouble.

When we pray in our pooja room, our subconscious mind synchronizes with the energy of that location.

Now, if that place of worship is in a good direction, we will benefit more from our prayers as the purpose will be better served by favourable energies. In case, it’s a direction having its pile of negativity to take care of, we won’t be able to cherish the many benefits of our prayers.

That’s why it’s necessary to find a positive area in your house that will ensure the blessings you receive from your prayers benefit you abundantly.

Here Are 3 Pooja Room Location Ideas For Your House.

  • North East

This is the first one on our list because it is the ideal mandir direction in home, according to Vastu. 

North East is a highly auspicious direction, which is not surprising considering it is popular as the home of the gods (Ishaan Kona).

Also, this direction gets a lot of sunlight, which kills microbes and makes this space cleaner and purer. 

The morning sun that’s accessible from this direction is also great for those who worship the Sun.

You can make the mandir in the North if you can’t find enough space in the North-East corner of the house.

Note that the pooja rooms in the North or North East should have walls in cream or blue colour. Blue here represents the water element. You might know that the North-East direction belongs to the water element.

  • West

If the North-East or North isn’t available to you, the next best direction is West. This direction may not get enough sunlight. But it does bring you sights of alluring sunsets that will make your evening prayers more cherishable.

Mainly, it’s the positive energy of this direction that helps make sure your prayers don’t go to waste. 

For temples in the West (measured from the centre of the house), the best colour to paint the walls will be white.

White is a fantastic option if you want a calming atmosphere which helps you concentrate and engage in spirituality. The pooja room can better serve its purpose as a place of devotion because of the cleanliness and purity that white brings about. 

You can put a white or off-white marble background or structure with few to no stripes in your temple in the West direction.

  • East

The third good option for a pooja room location in your house is the East. 

A quick and simple way to relax your worries is to pray. If your temple is in the East, you can increase your calm by painting the pooja room green. This colour has an energy of healing and hope that helps put you in the right frame of mind for reflection and prayer.

The direction East is where the sun rises, so it’s perfect for you if you worship the sun in the morning. Additionally, the energies of the East help increase your concentration, which is beneficial to pray in this world full of distractions and lack of attention.

Bonus Tips For Your Pooja Room Location

  • You can place the temple in the living room or give it a separate room. 

Avoid placing the temple in the kitchen and bedroom. The kitchen may have negative energy in the form of non-vegetarian or adulterated food. Also, if the kitchen colour isn’t right as per Vastu, having the temple there could be disastrous. Chek right kitchen colour as per vastu.

Avoid the bedroom as it may have an attached bathroom. Also, in the bedroom, there is a possibility that your feet may face the gods, thus disrespecting them when you sleep.

  • Do not place the temple in the store room.

The mandir should be in a neat and tidy room so that its positive energy does not get polluted with negative energy. So, it’s best not to keep much stuff in the same room as the temple as it can block the energy flow. That’s why the store room is not a good choice.

  • Make sure your temple is always clean, well-lit and clutter-free.

While this may seem obvious to some, it’s an essential addition to this list. You must never ignore the need for the cleanliness of the pooja room. 

Whether it is the cotton wicks or the diyas you use, everything in the temple should be organized, clean, and tidy. Additionally, the mandir should receive natural light as much as possible. So, keep the doors and curtains open.

  • Never place photos of your ancestors in the pooja room.

Our Pitras or ancestors are not alive and have an energy that’s not vibrant and lively. This energy can corrupt the positivity in the pooja room and must be avoided. However, when kept in the South-West, the same photos of your ancestors can be a blessing.

  • Hire a Vastu expert if you can’t find a spot.
