Bedroom is a place where you come, sit and relax and forget all your worries for the time being.

Prayer Room

The prayer room is the most significant and religious place in your home. It is the only room where you place spiritual pictures of god, the deities or your teachers. The ideal direction to keep these photos is to be on the eastern side only. Make sure not to build the prayer room under the stairs, since it is not considered good for auspicious occasions.

The kitchen is a place where you prepare tasty and delicious meals. As per Vastu Shastra, the kitchen should be located in the North East side of the home. It should not be designed above the bedroom, prayer room or toilet.
