Shelter is one of the essential needs for Humans. People spend a lot of their time in their homes. Therefore comfort and environmental conditions are important aspects of a residence. However in contemporary India this old practice is being termed as "myth" or "occult" by almost all. Still this practise proves to be extremely popular with modern day clients, who insist upon their residence being built and designed as per vastu shastra. This thesis handles the relevance of Vastu Shastra's important rules of architecture which derive from now proven methodical facts to todays architectural and home design practices. The target is to demonstrate that Vastu Shastra has a scientific track record with a practical application and it is not simply a superstition.
