Vaastu shastra, which means the science of construction, is an ancient Indian discipline that studies the effects that the laws of nature have on human constructions such as houses, temples, workplaces. Although it was originally used in designing temples and was concerned with religious architecture only, it is at present applied to nearly all forms of human construction. The basic assumption in vaastu is that the five basic elements i.e. Earth, Fire, Air, Water, and Sky govern our lives. All the five elements are interconnected so a dwelling must be designed in such a manner so as to balance these elements by choosing proper directions etc.
to ensure luck, prosperity and happiness for the inhabitants. These are summed up in the various rules that are used to design houses, workplaces, shrines, etc. For example, the gate of a house should be in the Northeast, North, or East, a house should never face a holy place, factory plots must have rectangular shape and many others pertaining to the site of construction.
