Pooja Ghar is the Holy heart of every home. It is the most sacred part of every home where every member of the family sits and pray. As you worship, keep religious texts, Idols, and images of deity’s and other Godly belongings in this room, hence you must protect this room from negative energies. But sometimes you commit some mistakes which are bad according to Vastu. So here are some mistakes which one should avoid in pooja ghar.

 Not paying attention to the direction of Pooja Ghar:

The first and most common mistake is to be not careful about the direction of Pooja Ghar. It is always advised to place your holy room in south direction. The north-east corner is the best direction for placing your Temple. Placing the temple in wrong direction gives negative energy and creates unnecessary hustle and stress in the home.

Choosing wrong location of pooja ghar

After the direction, another important thing is to check the location. Sometimes because of a shortage of space, people place the temple under the staircase space, or near the kitchen or toilet area. Always keep the pooja place on the ground floor. And if not that, then in your living area space away from kitchen or lobby area.

The inappropriate placing of God Idols:

Not all the direction is good for placing your divine God statues. Keep the idols in east or west of the pooja ghar. Before placing make sure that the idols are in good condition, never use idols with any breakage as they are not considered auspicious. Place the idols a few inches (at least an inch) away from wall and idols should never face towards the south.

Generally, people use any color of light in the Pooja ghar, which is not considered correct according to vastu. Use white, light yellow or light blue colors for walls of pooja room and plain white can also be used. You can also place an Agni Kund in the southeast or eastern side of the Pooja room.
