The wooden mandir should place at a height proper to the seating arrangement. It should be kept at a height right at the same level a person’s body sitting or standing in front of it. If the height is lower than that, it would be insulting to the lord. Also, above that height, it would be difficult for the person to see the god. The home puja mandir should not be kept directly to the floor, it should have some support.

Vastu Consultation @pujaNpujari

Without puja mandir, the Indian homes are incomplete, because people have a tradition for performing daily puja. Nowadays, everyone is giving more priority to puja mandirs. So puja mandaps(temple for god) are designed in a house to worship God. And they have constructed a temple in house design with more expansion. Vastu for puja room is mandatory. 

Puja Mandir Vastu Tips

Placement Direction In-Home, Office and Commercial Spaces

  1. The puja room or idol direction of god or goddess kept in the home, office, and commercial spaces. It’s incomplete without correct Vastu Shastra.
  2. As per Vastu Shastra, the North-Eastern or Eastern corner of the home is considered to be perfect to keep the Puja Mandir. And it brings good luck to your place.
  3. God must face in puja room should be facing west and devotee face to the east. For placing lord idols in Puja Mantap, the size of the idols should be relevant or lesser to the Mantap. Mandir size is not important while doing puja. The Diya should be kept or lit in the south-east direction.
  4. Puja room is a valuable part of a home and a perfect place for devoting the god. Devotees should always keep some isolation while praying or sitting in the puja mandir by using a mat or a puja chowki.
  5. The entrance of the puja hall must have a threshold.

Things to Avoid While Placing Wooden Puja Mandir

Wooden Puja Mandir

Puja Mandir should not be in the south direction.

  • The puja mandir should not be touch to the toilet or washroom, not even flat, below, or above.
  • It should not be placed in the bedroom, kitchen in case any space problem, you can place the mandir at some height and cover it with curtain or door to hide the idols or photo frames direct eye contact.
  • Avoid placing any inherited pictures inside the puja Mandap. It is considered as an inauspicious as per Vastu.
  • Avoid keeping damaged idols inside the temple or Mandir. Also, avoid keeping heavy idols or frames, because it damages the wooden mandir.

    We have been doing Puja facing west as the Gods facing east. This was taught to us as Gods draw their energy from the East even though this was contrary to what you suggest.

      If there is no option for you to have a prayer room in the East direction then do puja facing to the east direction even though puja room is in the south west direction. Damaged murtis can be placed in the river, if it is possible for you. Otherwise keep the murtis under the ground of any holy tree in the temple., so that one should not pass on Murthis with their legs.

      North Direction of the house is considered as Yama Place. In that direction puja mandir is not suggested. Even the main entrance door should not be placed in the north direction.

      Normally north west direction of the house should be occupied with master bedroom as it is better sleeping place. I think north west direction for puja room is not that much supportive to do pooja rituals.

    Hi, my temple at home is currently in north east (option 2 above) with us facing east and the idols facing west. However the challenge is that there is not much sitting space. if we move the temple a bit at same place to make more sitting space, we will be facing north and idol will be facing south. Is that fine or should we continue with it where it is? Thanks

      As per Vaastu Sastra, it is not good to place temple in the north east. It should be moved to east and idols should be facing west which is good thing as it improves the concentration level of the person while performing puja.

    Our house facing is east direction and we have a study in the north-east corner of the house. I am planning to put the puja mandir in the study. We don't have enough place to put the mandir facing west direction (we will be facing east direction while praying), so is it OK to put mandir facing east direction (we will be facing west direction while praying)

    I don't like the design of my mandir as its to heavy and the legs are not made in equal size as a result the mandir keeps on shaking while opening or closing the drawer,,so 1) can I order a new mandir?If yes, 2)what should I do my previous mandir?And 3)if I can order a new mandir, shall I give a gumbad design on the top of the mandir?

      Then puja room should be placed facing to the west. In Hindu culture, Vastu is just considered for convenience and well being. You can place puja mantap adjacent to kitchen and facing west which you may feel better to perform prayer.
