Vaastu Shastra is a traditional Hindu science that is used in architecture and town planning. The term ‘vastu’ is derived from Sanskrit ‘vastu’, meaning Earth and the word ‘shastra’ meaning ‘science’. This science describes the detailed methodology of designing and structuring buildings, buying land etc. for maximising benefits for the buyer, occupier. Vastu Shastra relies in harmonizing every real estate development with the five elements of Indian Mythology ie. air, water, earth, fire and space. The science is known to safeguard the health, wealth, prosperity and overall happiness and well being of individuals.
This traditional science has gained popularity in modern times and has become an essential parameter that is considered in real estate development, sale and purchase. Real estate buyers whether looking for industrial plots or residential plots, lands and built houses or corporate building stress on vastu while purchasing or renting real estate.
Since the principles of vastu shastra have evolved over years of experience of sages of India, they have proved to be very valuable for ensuring balance and harmony between man, nature and his buildings.
