About Vastu Shastra

Vastu Shastra is the Indian architectural science which is known for its most reliable art of architecture which combines the astrology, astronomy and art. The roots of Vastu Shastra can be found in our Indian history as it originated about 5000 years ago, since then our ancient Indian wise sages and intellect scholars were practicing this art of direction and formulated various principals of the Vastu shastra, which stabilizes the natures five elements namely earth, fire, water, sky and wind in such a way so that one can attain a harmonious and successful life.

The word 'Vastu' is originated from the phrase 'VASTOSHPATI' which is mentioned in the Rig Veda and is believed to render happiness, affluence, and shield in life. But it also said that Vastu Shastra can be truly attained in the presence of Vastu Purush, who is regarded as the main deity of a building according to ancient Vedas.
