Vastu Shastra, which literally translated means ‘the Science of Buildings’ is an ancient Indian science developed thousands of years ago by ancient Indian sages and takes into account the factors influencing a Site. Vaastu Shastra, an intangible part of Indian Architecture has its roots extended in Indian Philosophy, maths, geology, geography and religion.
The factors influencing a Site are topography, roads, surrounding structures, the Sun’s effects, Earth’s magnetic field, Earth’s energy fields, the cardinal directions and Nature’s elements. Vastu shastra lays down guidelines and tips for the ‘design of buildings’, so that Man can benefit from the useful and positive effects of these factors and is protected from the harmful and negative effects.
It is therefore, worthwhile to understand the importance of these factors, their positive and negative effects on Man and how the positive effects can be used to advantage in the design of his dwelling. All this has been explained under the following headings.
