geometrical axis of the plot should be aligned with earth's magnetic axis;
one of the plot sides should parallel to the north south directions and
other should be parallel to east-west directions. If the plot is not aligned
in the north south direction, the land is poor for overall growth, peace
and happiness. The shape, size, levels and angles of the plot should be
examined. If it does not comply with the Vaastu principles the necessary
additions and alterations should be done to the plot.
of Plot -
The land should be elevated towards the south and west sides and it should
be lower in North and east sides overall growth and prosperity.
Shape of plot
it should be a square.
Rectangle is also good provided the breadth and length ratio should
not be more than 1:2
round and all other odd shapes are not considered good.
of the plot ·
all angles are 90 degreesit is considered best .
Square site: If the ratio of two adjacent sides of a site is
1:1 and every corner is a 90 degrees angle, it is called a square and
is best for overall growth. ·
South west angle should be 90 degrees North west and south east angle
should be close to 90 degrees or more. ·
North east should be close to 90 degrees or less but should never exceed
If the ratio of width and depth of a site is within 1:15 and all corners
are of 90 degrees, it is also good for growth. If the depth is more
than twice the width, the site becomes weaker for growth. The symmetrical
geometry of shape is good in general. The unsymmetrical shape is not
always good. The various shapes and their possible effects are as below
Square : Overall growth Rectangular :Overall growth
Circular :Increases mental capabilities
Unsymmetrical / Irregular Shapes : Oval Shape:Inauspicious
Triangular:Loss due to fire,Govt. harassment, Penalty etc.
Parallelogram : Financial losses, Quarrels in family.
Star : Quarrel and litigations, Destruction of peace.

is good to have more than one road.
and east roads are the best.
and west roads are good for business people.
South and east roads are good for women and women organisations.
Levels inside the plot
ground levels should be high in the south and west.
The ground levels in the north and east should be lowest in the plot.
in the south east and north west should be more or less equal.
North should be lower than south and east should be lower than west.
outside the plot
and north levels of the adjoining plot or road should be low.
and mounds are preferred towards south and west.
bodies are preferred on north and east for good results.
A high building towards south or west or south west bring good prosperity.
Water bodies, depressions and low levels are considered bad towards
south west of the plot.
wells and open wells which are to be dug in the plot before starting construction
should be placed as per the principles below:
East side well should be in the first half of the plot towards north.
side well should be in the first half towards the east.
Well should never be placed in the west or south or south west.
is also not good to place the well on the north west or south east,
A well opposite to the gate or main gate is not advisable.
A well should never be placed in the center of the plot.
