Vastu Shastra is an ancient Indian architectural and design system that aims to harmonize the built environment with natural elements and cosmic energies. It originated from ancient Vedic texts and is considered a traditional Hindu science of architecture.

The principles of Vastu Shastra dictate guidelines for the layout, design, and construction of buildings, including homes, temples, offices, and other structures. The goal is to create spaces that promote health, prosperity, happiness, and overall well-being for the occupants.
