An Ideal Home can be made on a "GAUMUKHI PLOT". It should be made very carefully by considering the following points in planning:


It should be constructed in the North-East to achieve good health and wealth and if in the houses already constructed, the balcony is in South-West, it should be covered with frosted glass or screens.


It should be in the Northwest directions and the flow of its drains should be towards North-East. Commode should be East facing. Exhausts fan can be fixed on North and East walls. Geysers should be South-East since it is 'Agneya' corner and Geyser is associated with heat


While construction a bedroom, directions should be specially chosen.

Northwest: The room in this direction is suitable for guests and girls.
Southwest: The Head of the house should have his room in this direction.
Southeast: No bedroom should be located in this direction. The children do not take interest in studies. There is no sound sleep. People have much anger. Decisions are generally taken hurriedly.

Children’s room

The children are future of the nation. If the parents are able to give right direction to the children at their tender age then tomorrow they will turn into disciplined citizens. The children's room, too, should be constructed in the North-West corner but the bathroom should be arranged in above noted direction only.

Dining Room

In olden days the meals were taken in the kitchen itself but now the dining room has become an integral part of the drawing room. However the dining table should be kept in South-East.


The doors should be in the North and East. When someone enters through the door, the waves emerging from the doors affect his mind because the magnetic waves always flow around us. Some painting or window should be opposite each door.

Drawing Room

It should be in North or North-East direction. In the traditional drawing rooms mattresses, covered with white sheets of cloth are spread in the entire room and round pillows are kept in South and West walls. Similarly, in the modern drawing room, the furniture should be kept in South and West directions. As far as possible the open space should be maximum in North and East direction

Entertainment Room

This is an important place and the suitable directions for it is North-West or South.

Food Storage

The store should be in the kitchen and in the South corner.


It should be in the South-East or North-West corner but load on North and East Walls be kept at the minimum.

General Room

Though, it is sparingly used; yet it should be constructed in the North-West.

Guest Room

It should be in North-West corner.


The kitchen must be situated in fire angle, i.e. in South-East. The face of the cook should be towards the East. The water tap in kitchen should be in the North-East direction. It is better if the stone on which food is cooked, is of red colour.

Northwest: This direction is the source of air. Fire and air are combined. The kitchen can be built in this direction. While cooking, the face should be to the East only.
Southwest: This direction is not suitable for kitchen.
Northeast: This direction represents the place of water. Fire and water are not friends. Hence, the kitchen should not be located in this direction, as it would harm peace and mutual love in the family. However, if there is a tank or well in this direction, it is all right.


As the hot water is also used while laundering the clothes, the South-East corner has been considered best for it but the flow of drains should be towards North-East.

Main Switch

The junction of electric cables of the house should be in the South-East corner along with the main switch.

Main Gate

The main gate is dependent upon the direction on which the plot lies. However, Both-East and North directions are considered best for the main gate of the house.

Mezzanine Floor

According to the rules of Vastu-Shastra we have to keep the South-West portion higher. Therefore the mezzanine floor should be constructed in, South or West.

Open Space

In every plot more open space should be kept in North, East and North-East than in South and West.


It should be in the Borth-East and its height should be less than that of the main roof.

Patient's Rooms

It is best to keep this room in East direction, with clear glass windows in the East. If the head of the patient is kept in the South, he recovers early.

Place of Worship

This is the place from where good ideas flow. If it is in the North-East and the face of the idol is towards North or East then the property of the house is assured.

Servant Quarters

These should be in the North-West corner. But load on the north and east walls should be kept at a minimum. This will keep the servants also happy.

Stair Case

According to the principles of Vastu Shastra the staircase can be constructed in any direction except North-East. If in some old house, the staircase is in the North-East, then a room should be constructed in South-West to lessen its ill-effects.

Study Room

The North-East corner is best for a study room. If the study room and place of worship room are adjacent then it is considered most beneficial.


Petty cash, Jewelry and other valuables should be kept inside a safe in the South. This adds to prosperity.


It should be in the North-East.


These should not be in North and East but in South and West only.


This should be in the East as this is also a form of open space.

Overhead Water-Tank

It is best to keep it in the South-West, but could be kept in South also.

Well & Tube well

Water, too, enjoys great importance in Vastu-Shastra, so it should be in the Eishan Kona or North-East corner which is the most suited direction for it. It has been observed that if a well or tube well was in any other direction, the house owner suffers heavy losses. But when it was closed and the tube well was constructed in the North-East, the owner started earning profits.
