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.
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.
