IDEAL DIRECTIONS FOR HOME TEMPLE;-
05 FACTS;- 1- For installing a mandir, use north-eastern or eastern part of the home. Both these directions bring good luck in Vastu and is perfect for a mandir.

Ishan is Ishwar or God. That’s how it is the direction of God/Jupiter. Hence, it is advisable to keep the temple there. 2-Moreover, the earth’s tilt is also towards the north-east direction only and it moves with the starting point of the north-east. Hence, this corner is like the engine of a train, which pulls the entire train.

Avoid placing the temple in the south, south-west or south-east zones of house . 5-The purpose of any puja or prayer is to first connect with your inner-self and then, with the Universal Consciousness or God.
