The Compound wall protects the site from animals, thieves, etc and serves to demarcate the boundary of the property.
Here, I have explained the Vastu Guidelines for Construction of the Compound Wall, and the possible scientific reasons and logic on which they were based, so that you an decide what you want to follow and what you don’t.
WHAT ARE THE VASTU GUIDELINES FOR THE COMPOUND WALL?
Compound Wall should not be higher than the House: The Reasoning – If the Compound wall is higher than the house, it will cut off light to the House.
Compound Wall should be higher and thicker in the South and West sides : The Compound walls on the North and East sides should be a foot (12 inches) shorter than on the West and South sides. If this is not possible, then the North and East sides should be a minimum of (3 inches) shorter. The Reasoning – The higher and thicker Compound wall on the South-West, prevents the hot evening Sun rays from heating up the house and the lower compound on the North-East allows the useful morning Sunlight into the House.
WHAT ARE THE VASTU GUIDELINES FOR THE MAIN GATE AND SMALLER GATES?
Two gates are preferable: The Reasoning – It makes sense to have a big gate for the car to enter and a smaller gate which is easier to handle near the entrance.
Avoid gates in the extreme corners: The Reasoning – It is inconvenient to open and close a gate that is fixed to the corners of the wall.
Main gate and the entrance door should face the same direction: The Reasoning – For visitors entering through the gate, it is easier for them to notice the main door if the door is also facing the same direction as the gate.
Avoid a gate in the South side: The Reasoning – The South is not considered auspicious for an entrance, but obviously if your Site is a South facing one, the gate has to be in the South side.
Gates should open clockwise: The Reasoning – Since the majority of the population is right-handed, it is easier to push open a door or gate in the clockwise direction.
