Pooja room platform design

When placing an idol in the pooja room, never place it on the floor. An altar or platform is a must-have feature in a home mandir. Create a pedestal made of marble or wood to keep the deities. You can also adorn the space with oil lampstands or lights on either side of the idol.

Designing a small wall-mounted pooja ghar is an excellent option for small homes. A shelf or home mandir design with a pyramid top or Indian-style arch will set the right ambience for the pooja space.

Pooja room size

When designing a mandir for home, the ideal size of the room is an important point to consider. A spacious room will be convenient, especially during festivals or poojas when the family comes together. Often, the mandir is a part of the living room so that it can be extended to accommodate more people.

An area of approximately 5 x 7 ft is suitable for a spacious pooja room at home. If you are creating a wall-mounted mandir, a width of 3 ft and a height of 2.5 or 3 ft is ideal.

Idol placement in mandir for home

The placement of the deities should be based on Vastu principles. Place the idols so that they face either north or east and the person praying should also face one of these directions. The idols should not face each other. Keep a gap between the wall and the idols.

Make sure to create a positive ambience by keeping the area clean and clutter-free. Moreover, when planning a mandir at home, ensure proper ventilation to allow the smoke from incense sticks to escape.
