Pooja room is one of the fortunate and sacred places of the house, however, this “most fortunate and sacred” room needs to be as per the rules of vastushastram. Once the the pooja room is fixed at the right place and direction, the room automatically starts to attract positivity and becomes more harmonious.
According to Sri Aandal vastu,
Pooja room should be placed in the South East or North West portion of the house.
The pooja room must not be located on the North East or on the South West portion and in the Bramasthanam of the house, strictly.
Pooja room should be set in a room that faces the East.
A separate room for pooja should be avoided.
The pooja room should be set up in such a way that no one stands or walks above the pooja room. For instance, if the pooja room is in the ground floor, you should not walk above it on the first floor, because it is like stepping on god.
Thus, it is good to have a niche on the wall i.e engrave/carve some space in the wall and construct a shelf in the carved area to use for pooja.
Idol worship should not be done in the pooja room at home and limited number of photographs is ideal.
