Vastu Guidelines For Site Location | An Architect Explains

According to Vastu Shastra, the location of the Site is very important. Some  locations are very auspicious while some others are best to be avoided. Vastu Shastra lays down guidelines to aid you in the Selection of a Site with the best ‘Location’.
Since Vastu is a science, every guideline is based on logic and reasoning. As an Architect, I have attempted to explain these guidelines rationally and scientifically, so that you can decide what you want to follow and what you don’t, instead of blindly following them like a superstition.



ACCORDING TO VASTU SHASTRA, WHAT IS THE IDEAL LOCATION OF A SITE?
Peaceful, calm place with lot of greenery and good water source and good soil. The Logic Fertile soil is an indication of good soil for construction. Peace is what everyone seeks.

Trust your intuition: When purchasing a property, it is a good idea to stand on the land and feel its vibration for a few moments. If you feel positive about it, consider buying the land. If not, it is probably not good for you. The Reasoning It is always advisable to trust your instinct but make sure you are not influenced by anything or anyone else.
A peaceful, calm place with a lot of greenery is the ideal site for a house

Plot with a good history: It is best to buy land where happy and successful people have lived. The ReasoningPsychologically, you will feel that a land where people were happy and prosperous, has good vibrations or energy.

Plot with roads on all four sides is considered the best: It ensures health, wealth and happiness. The Reasoning This is because a Plot with roads on all four sides is not abutting any body’s property and hence one can derive maximum lighting and ventilation from all four sides.

The next best option is a Plot with roads on the North or East. The Reasoning – So that more light and air can enter from these sides in the mornings.

Plots with a water source in the North, East or North-East are good: The Reasoning The germicidal UV rays of the morning sunlight, which engulf the North-East corner in the morning, can purify the water before you start to use it.

Ideally a plot near a river or lake is the best
ACCORDING TO VASTU SHASTRA, WHAT ARE THE SITES THAT ARE NOT CONSIDERED GOOD?
Avoid Plots sold by a person in distress: Such Plots should be purchased only with caution. The Reasoning You feel psychologically unhappy and guilty, knowing that the Plot was sold out of helplessness and that the previous owner must be still holding onto it.
Avoid Sites near a public place: The Plot should not be abutting any public place like temple, hospital, factory, school, college, Kalyan Mantapa etc The Reasoning These places will constantly be crowded and noisy. But if they are at least 80 ft away, then the plot is acceptable.

Avoid Sites that were previously owned by a temple or charitable trust: The Reasoning – People are looking for reasons to raise a temple and if it is known that the plot was previously owned by a temple trust, there will be a lot of pressure to donate it for the temple or charity.

Avoid Sites near smelly places: The Plot should not be near a meat shop, workshop, leather tannery, laundry, shoe shop, dustbins, sewage drains etc. The Reasoning The stench emanating from these places will permeate the house permanently and naturally not create a relaxed atmosphere in the house.

Avoid a haunted/dilapidated house: The Plot should not be purchased, if in the recent past someone has committed suicide on it, or if there have been several deaths over a period of a couple of months. The Reasoning You may psychologically feel uneasy if you happen to know of such a past.

Avoid dilapidated houses

Avoid sites where cactus grows. The Reasoning- Such sites indicate sandy soil which will not support the foundation effectively.

Avoid sites in which there are lot of termites: The Reasoning – Even if anti-termite treatment is done on the foundation, there is a every likelihood that the termites will not be eradicated completely since the termites form a vast underground network.

Avoid a Plot sandwiched between larger plots: The Reasoning – The owner of the smaller Plot can only construct  a much smaller house than the owners of the larger plots and thus, may subconsciously feel ‘small’  and overpowered with respect to the neighbours. This can create a feeling of inferiority in the owner.

Avoid Sites with obstructions: Don’t buy a Plot with obstructions like hills, tall buildings or towers on the North, North-East or East sides. The Reasoning The useful morning sun’s rays will be blocked. However having such obstructions on the West or South sides are considered good as they block the hot western rays.

Avoid plots with an electrical pole or power supply station in the North-East corner: The Reasoning – It is an obstruction and can create harmful electric waves,that can permeate the house from the open North-East corner.

Avoid plots with lot of cracks or too much wet soil: The Reasoning – Cracks indicate dried up clayey soil and too wet soil also indicates clayey soil that does not allow the drainage of water. Such soil is not suitable for a building foundation as it will retain moisture and necessitate extra expenditure for water-proofing the foundation

Avoid Plots with trees: If the Plot is a small one, there should not be trees like Peepal, Mango, Banyan, Tamarind etc on it. The Reasoning – These trees have far-spreading roots and branches, which can cause damage to the building foundation. However, if the Plot is quite big, it is good to have these trees, but away from the building and not in the North-East corner.

Avoid Plots facing a T or Y intersection: The Reasoning – This is because you can see oncoming traffic and this may make you feel a bit nervous or lack of privacy. However, in some cases, as explained below, such plots are acceptable.

ACCORDING T O VASTU SHASTRA, WHAT IS VEEDI SHOOLA?

Plots facing a T or Y intersection, where roads or lanes run right into the face of the site from different directions are called Veedi (road) Shoolas (Arrows) or Therukuthus. Since it is difficult to comment on the different permutations and combinations of roads, oncoming roads, directions etc, that form the Veedi Shoolas, let us examine the basic considerations, in naming them as good, not bad, bad and very bad.

( E—NE ) If the oncoming road is from the East, and hits the North-East part of the Plot, it is considered a good site.

( N—NE ) If the oncoming road is from the North, and hits the North-East part of the Plot it is considered a good site.

( W —NW ) If the oncoming road is from the West, and hits the North- West part of the Plot, it is considered as a not bad site.( S—SE ) If the oncoming road is from the South, and hits the South- East part of the Plot, it is considered as a not bad site.

( E — SE ) If the oncoming road is from the East, and hits the South- East part of the Plot, it is considered a bad site.

( N — NW) If the oncoming road is from the North, and hits the North-West part of the Plot, it is considered a bad site.

( W — SW ) If the oncoming road is from the West, and hits the South-West part of the Plot,  it is considered a very bad site.

( S — SW ) If the oncoming road is from the South, and hits the South-West part of the Plot, it is considered a very bad site.

ARE THERE ANY CORRECTIONS FOR VEEDI SHOOLAS IN VASTU SHASTRA?

If your Plot is facing an intersection, (called a Veedi Shoola), as you can see the oncoming traffic and people, you may feel a bit nervous or a lack of privacy. In order to overcome this, you can use the corner of the Plot that faces the intersection as a garage or car porch etc so that the main house is not facing the intersection. Or you could fence off that part and use it for some other purpose like a garden or outhouse etc.

    hello sir
    we want to buy a site ….we have two site option to buy…i’l describe you…one is at the main road having only one road at the north side… all directon has packed it is the old house 20’x55′ is the size……& another is having a rode on two side tht is south-west & the size is 36’x40’….which one to buy…tel me sir…waiting for ur reply sir i just confused about these two sites

    Dear Ruta,
    In such a situation, you need to take note of the neighborhood, the lay of the land, the nearby houses (do they look prosperous or old and derelict), the dimensions of the site etc. But most of all you need to stand in the site and try to get a feel about it. Go for the site that has a good feel.
    But all this aside, as an architect I can say that a 36′ x 40′ site is better proportioned than a 20′ x 55′ site and hence easier to design on. Wish you good luck in your choice.

    Dear Sir
    I am planning to buy a plot to build a house and one of the sites available is pie shaped (triangular with one rounded margin, almost 1/4th-1/5th of a circle). The round margin (the biggest dimension) faces north and has a road on this side but another road joins this road right in the middle of plot (a T junction on north side). This is the biggest site available and rest of plots are smaller and ither rectangular or trapezoid Irregular arms). Would is be auspicious to build on this plot considering it is roughly triangular in shape. Is there any way to build on it without getting problems from vasstu dosha in this case?
    thanks
    Hi Sukumar,
    I think it is better to look at another site, even if it may be smaller because from an Architect’s point of view, to build a vastu compliant house on a triangular site will be a challenge and there will be a lot of wasted space around the house. So effectively the built-up area possible in a triangular site can be only as much as that on a smaller site.

    Dear Sir,

    First of all thank you very much for this wonderful website.

    I am planning to rent an apartment/townhouse with two floors and basement car garage. The apartment faces a retention pond – it holds water for short period of time when it rains. There are other apartments on the other side of the retention pond. I wanted to take your advise before I sign the lease. Will it be okay from Vastu stand point? If not, are there any remedies or it’s completely not advisable.
    Thanks a lot in advance. I will eagerly await your response.
    Hi Shree Ganesh,
    The pond could be a mosquito haven since it is not around throughout the year. It’s your call.

    hi,
    I am planning to buy an apartment. The plot is facing North and has a road hitting from the North, the road is hitting 3/4 of the building on the Northside(NW). This road is not a dead end and it automatically flows to the right in the West direction. the apartment has two flats per floor one facing south and the other facing north. I am planning for the flat facing north which is in the back side. Does this have an impact of Veedhi Shoola? if so what are the negative effects?
    Hi Siva Prasad,
    Since your flat is in the back, you are not exposed to the spearing road. So it should not bother you.

    Dear Sir we planning to buy an plot N-S 25″ E-W 27. The plot is corner site facing south and west. In west side one road passes normally but in south side a road hitting from south to north direction and other one passing through east to west. we are planning to built house by east face. further to this op to south west there is a spiritual bajana mandhir. Does this have an impact of vastu in-auspicious if so what are the negative effects and remidies?
    Hi Vinod,
    A south west site is okay. In fact you have the advantage that it is a corner site, so there is ample light. But the bhajana mandir might be a source of constant noise and disturbance in the long run. From your description I gather that your site has a spearing road. You can read more about it in my post on VEEDI SHOOLAS.

    Hi Pramod Goel,
    Since you say this is not a main road, but a layout road within a gated area, the amount of traffic will be limited and should not affect you adversely.

    Hi Farhana,
    According to Vastu, your house seems to be quite okay. No doubt you are going through a difficult phase after the death of your dad. But you do not have to link all your troubles with the vatsu of your house (in which you have been living for the past 13 years). Think of it as a passing phase and try to reflect on your life and make necessary changes. Good luck!

    Dear Sir, My house is facing East and is in T junction. The road beside my plot is in North-South direction and another road directly faces my house on East side and covers full length. Pl let me know is it good Vastu house or any remedies required. Appreciate your valuable suggestions urgently. Thank you in advance. Regards, Kumar
    Hi Kumar,
    Your site is effectively at a dead end of a spearing road. So ideally you should have your main door from the side and not on the front (East) side. But if your main door is in the front, then place a mirror above the door so that you believe that you are reflecting away the negative, spearing energy that is directed to your house.

It has two roads one road is proceeding infront of the house ie., West to East and another road is proceeding from west to south and takes turn towards west at my site’s South west corner. Is it considered to be road potu? or veedhi soola?. It is good site or not?
    Hi Ramana,
    If the road in the South West is hitting your site, then it is Veedi shoola. If it is caressing your site, then your site is a corner site which is a good site.

    Sir,
    I’m planning to purchase a residential site which is at T Junction. It’s East Facing Plot. It’s almost 80% of the East facing side is facing the road coming from the east side. The thing is that the Opposite road hitting the site is a dead end road whose entire Length of road is only 150 feet. So should I consider this as T junction road, if yes then can I purchase the site?
    Thanks in advance!
    Hi Ramesh,
    Since the road hitting the site is only 150′ and a dead-end one, it will be serving only a few sites and so it will not be a busy road. So you can consider the site. The advantage is that it is an East facing site.

    Hi Sabitha,
    A shop needs visibility and putting a staircase in front, will only obstruct it. I think you need to look into other aspects like the condition of the shops, the location etc for your problems.

    Hi Santosh,
    What difference will it make to you by knowing whether it is okay or not. You cannot shift your house from a T-junction. Many times, “ignorance is bliss” and it is better to know if something is bad or not. Instead focus on the positive aspects of your house like an East facing entrance etc.

The soak pit/drainage field associated with the septic tank is very big and extends beyond NE corner of the HOUSE. However, if we look at the entire LOT, soak pit will be to the east of the LOT.

    Hi Riju,
    A T-junction is not ideal but not bad either. Just make sure you plant some taller hedge plants or a high compound wall in the corner where the road hits your site., That way you cannot see the oncoming traffic from your house.. Burt do not do it in such a way as to block of the sunlight to your house.

Opposite the road on the west side, there is a college hostel and there inner compound road hits our plot.. The compound road is always closed by a gate.. So no traffic passing through that gate.. Please advise if it is a good plot because everything else inside the house is per vastu. So very confused and would really appreciate your advise. Thanks

    You cannot expect a perfect house. As you say the arrangement of the house is perfectly as per vastu. So why hesitate. You can use either road. It does not matter.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the info.

    I am looking to buy a plot which is north facing. Its a T junction, a normal road runs east-west and road hit to this plot at north.

    Plot frontage is 42 feet, there is a road comes from north and width of the road for 30ft starts from North East corner and covers entire NE and 10 feet in NW part. That is, 100% of NE and 50% of NW are having road hit in north.

    Reading your responeses above tells that NE road hit is good but in my case there is some part of NW also having road hit. Would like to know your opinion on this.
    Hi Praveen,
    You can consider this plot as a dead-end plot. Like I always say, the decision is to be taken by you. Visit the site as many times as you want to, with your family members and ‘feel’ it’s vibes. If you feel happy and positive while standing in it, then it is good for you.

    Hello,

    I have a question regarding buying a house on an intersection. It is not the main highway kind of intersection but interior roads in a colony. Thus it is not a very busy intersection. The house is on the north – west side of the intersection. The house with the main entrance faces north. The other side of the house faces west.
    The house seems to get a lot of light because it has windows all around. However, I hesitate because it is on the intersection. The garage is on the south-east corner of the house. The current owner of the house has put a lot of trees on the west and south part of the house to shield from the main road. What is your opinion of such a house.
    Thank you!
    Hi AG,
    It seems like a good house. The trees on the South and west side will reduce the heat to the house and the fact that it is a corner site is a bonus as you can get ample light from two roads. But before you buy it, ‘feel’ the place. If you feel positive while standing there or thinking about it, go ahead and buy it.

    Hi Vinod Kumar,
    The best solution when you are faced with so many choices is to stand in the property and ‘feel’ it. Also include your family members. The property that gets the most votes for the positivity that it radiates, is the house for you.

    Sir, I am going to purchase a north facing house it is an extent of 30X55 feet. I am karkata raasi, aslesha nakshtra. Is the north facing house is suit for me? But the plot is having in front road which is proceeding from West to East direction and it was hit by 24 feet road which was proceeding from North to South direction. The said 24 feet road hit the plot only 7 feet at Northeast-north. It is seems to be T-junction. It is auspicious or not?
    Hi Ramana,
    You are forgetting that there will be other family members living with you. As it is, vastu compliance is very difficult to achieve in small sites in cities. If you start looking at your horoscope and then the horoscopes of family members to ensure that you get a perfectly vastu compliant house, you will be disappointed as it is not possible. So be practical and make do with what is possible.
    Your site is at a T-junction but since it is in the NE corner, it does not matter. The best test for buying a site is to “feel” it. When you spend some time in the site, do you feel good or bad? That will be your answer.

    Hi,
    My site is 40×60 feet Gated Community).West side is 40feet,road based and 60 feet is south side ,road based.East side is next flat and North side is park, No road. I plan to build shop in SW CORNER AND MAIN ENTRANCE IN SOUTH AND HOUSE ENTRANCE IN EAST SIDE .Is it good site and plan is Ok if house entrance in East but main entrance in South. Very eager to know your reply at the earliest.
    Hi MS,
    Having an East entrance is good. So considering your site orientation, the best option is to have the gate entrance on the South side.

    Hello Sir.
    I am considering to buy a plot facing north.My plot is on the entrance of dead end road(street).Road enters from east side and totally closed at west side means every traffic who enters into the street has to go back to east side(after making U- turn) to out of the street.
    My house is just on the entrance (north facing) after that are 07 house in my side and 08 houses(facing south) opposite side. Pls advise me should I buy the same plot or not?
    Thanks & Regards:
    Aman.
    Hi Aman,
    If your proposed site is not near the dead end, it is okay to buy it. But like I always say, if you have any hesitation or bad feeling about it, then avoid it. On the other hand if you liked it along with your family, then go for it

    Recently we have purchased a south west corner facing plot which has a road on its south phase.At south south west corner of the plot there is a road coming from south and forming a T junction. from the time of purchase we felt a little bit bad. can u tell me what are the remedial measures for that plot and how can we escape from harm ful effects of it?
    Hi Kumar,
    Why and what do you feel bad about? Is it because someone has told you negative things about the oncoming road? Now that negativity has set in, you should do some sort of ritual to make you feel positive. Get the site cleaned, and organise for an elaborate pooja/prayer at the site. The continuous chanting of prayers, the enchanting vision of the priests repetitive actions and fragrance of the incense and smoke does a lot of good to your senses. It will definitely uplift you. Do not bother about the oncoming road. When planning the house, just make sure the house part is not in line with this road. You can keep the car porch there. But even after all this, you still are not feeling good about this site, then sell it and buy something else.

    Thanks you sir. Lavanya.
    Hi Lavanya,
    A spearing road from the East hitting the NE corner of your site is good as you can get more light and ventilation in the NE corner due to the presence of 2 roads at the junction.

    There is plot next to the building we just constructed two years back. Both are West facing. The new building has north facing main doors, 3 floors. My neighbour of the vacant plot adjacent to the north side wants us to take his plot for sale. But the problem is it has a road hitting on that plot. Is that plot which is west facing to the road, bought by my husband. He is a businessman. He wants to buy that but little hesitant because of the road kuthu. Please advise.
    Hi Mangala,
    It is ideal to acquire the adjacent site as you have control over it and can ensure ample light and ventilation to your existing building. But if you have some reservations about the spearing road, then it is better you don’t do anything in a hurry. Think about the pros and cons and how you actually feel about the site.Only then make a decision. It is finally your choice.

    Hi I am buying a 3 bed room apartment in the first floor of the property with 30 feet road on the west side of the property. The main gate to the apartment community is at north- west corner of the plot. And my apartment is north facing and entrance is at North. The total plot area is 38 feet west and 60 feet north. And the plot is at T junction by west- south west , but the exposed plot area is just 4 feet width. Does it have a big impact to my apartment in the first floor and do i need to do any remedy for it.
    Hi Suresh,
    No it will not have any impact on the building. But you need to be convinced that this apartment is the right one for you. You should spend some moments in the apartment and ‘feel’ the vibrations. If you feel positive about it, then go for it.

    We are considering a townhome. The house is not yet built. As per the Plans, East side of the house is attached with the another house. The plot faces north. The site slopes- high in the front and then slants towards the back. North is higher than the south. The builder is taking advantage of the front elevation to build a basement, which also opens at ground level at the back. We have access to north, south and west sides with windows- there should be light in the later half. I have not had a situation where I had no light from the east. At the back are the school fields. Also, the road itself slopes. So, the west side is also higher than the east side.
    Is such a plot OK?
    Hi AG,
    The builder is rightly taking advantage of the site slope. You need not worry about the slope of the land, because your house floors will be at one level. But your disadvantage is that you will not be getting light from the East. However if you have ample light into the house, then I guess it should be okay. But you need to make the call. If you feel positive about this property, go ahead.

    Hi we have identified a plot Which is a shape of a trapezium. Backside north to south is longer and the front side facing east is shorter in length. The difference is not much though. The the road runs on the front side east facing ends at this plot. While there were positive vibes about this plot we would like to take advise about vastu aspect .
    Regards
    Hi Tania,
    This site is a gou-mukh plot that has a narrower front and a wider back. This is considered good in Vastu.

    Dear Sir,
    Thank you for taking my query. I am considering to buy a SE facing land. The shape of the land is somewhat like ‘D’ where instead of circular curve it is angular. The front face does not curve immediately like the ‘D’ shape at the bottom, but its like 5 sided ‘D’. And although the plot is big in size, there are three ant-hills at the front side and there are two mango trees behind. Please advise whether to buy.
    Hi Sanjay,
    The shape of the site is okay and there is no need for concern. But the ant hills are not good for construction of a house, as it is full of holes and makes the soil infirm. Also there might be chances that snakes live in the holes. So before construction, it is better to remove the anthills. Relocate any snakes, fill the holes with stones, gravel and cement and level the land.

    Hello sir.. I am planning to buy a 10 years old house which is in a dead end facing north side… is dead end house safe or dangerous?? If soo, plz tell me any remedies..
    Hi Preeta,
    A house at a dead end is not ideal as there is a tunnel effect flow of air towards the dead end. So the wind can be quite strong. Also the privacy to the house is affected. But if you really like everything else in this site, then you could consider planting high hedges in the front to reduce the effect of the wind and protect the privacy.

    Sir
    I have peculiar question about an apartment. The site of the apartment is a right angled triangle site.where SE corner is not there only NE SW and Nw is avaliable. In this plot 3 apartments are constructed in each floor. NOW I am looking at a flat on Nw corner one. The site is having North by road and east diagonal road. Please advice me to buy a plot on this property.
    Hi Nagendran,
    There is nothing wrong with the apartment you have in mind. But your decision depends on the internal planning and your gut feeling. If you are convinced that the plan suits you and you feel good about it, then go ahead.

    I’m planning to buy a plot which is abt 35ft (frontage) east facing and bounded by road on the north side 65 ft..the plot is on a main commercial road.. But we have a small hospital right opposite our plot.. What should I do
    Hi Rohit,
    The site has roads on the North and East sides which is a very good thing. But a hospital opposite to it is not good as it can have a negative effect on your sub-conscious mind especially when you see sick people going in every day. If it is possible to block of the view towards the hospital, then you could consider buying it. But then the ultimate decision is yours.

    Hi Arvind,
    If you are on a higher floor the ill-effects caused by a spearing road are reduced.

    Hi Sir,
    I am planing to buy a east facing house and there is a small road hitting on south west corner(10 ft out of 30) of the house. Can I buy this house or please let me know how it looks like.
    Hi Mahendar,
    The spearing road is not an issue and you could build a high wall or tall plants in front of the road. But the final decision is yours. Go by your gut feeling.

    Hello sir/madam,
    We have seen a plot of dimensions 30* 50 and very much liked it, it’s a rectangular shared and entire plot is East facing but tilted 27 degrees towards South from East. Please suggest us whether it’s good or not to go for it. Thanks a lot in advance.
    Hi Lalita,
    A tilt in the orientation will not affect the vastu much. The important thing is that all of you liked it. So go by your gut feeling.
