Here are 3 basic Vastu principles that can be seen in ancient temples:

1. NE is the lowest 

In these temples, NE is the lowest corner of the plot with the lowest massing in terms of height as well as the ground sloping in this direction.

2. SW is the heaviest  

The temple’s SW corner is the heaviest of the plot with the highest point in terms of slope as well as the maximum height of the building on site.

3. N/NE/E directions are where the waterbodies are

Ponds/underground tanks are situated on the sites as it’s considered beneficial. It ensures mental clarity, and prosperity and attracts wealth

Here are a few of the Indian temples that continue to be the richest till date

The principles which came into existence in the ancient ages are still very much relevant even today. The only exception is the scary myths that gullible clients have been made to believe. These principles can be easily incorporated into modern residential and commercial spaces for better energy flow.
