Vastu Shastra is an ancient Hindu System of architecture that origins around 6000 BC.
Vastu Shastra is based on scientific facts . It considers Sunrays, gravitational force, magnetic power, geographical condition, the five elements, and directions which is very essential to construct a house.
The residential and commercial spaces constructed nowadays rely on the basics of the five Elements in all aspects of planning, construction and doing the interiors.
Vastu Shastra in the modern age is not completely different from the one that was used in the ancient era but the way is different and the approach is different but altogether modern day Vastu Shastra used in today's architectural construction is derived from the Vedic sutras.
