According to vastu shastra sites sloping towards East and north are auspicious and proffer all-round prosperity and health. Land sloping towards South and West is highly inauspicious.

Finally South to North directional moment. More weights towards South direction brings good health and money and lesser weights towards North bestows cheers in the family. Please note that this kind of system may not work always in commercial shops. Furthermore, sometimes the reverse is working good in terms of Shops with South direction.

In vastu shastra land is divided into eight categories depending on the elevations and depressions in different directions and angles. Below is the chart shows that the 8 directions the land elevation and depression proceedings and its results.

Elevation = Height, distance upwards, 

Depression = Down, bottom, nadir, foot level.



West East Good Children, Good Education, Fame, and prosperity
East West Unhappiness from children, Setbacks in Education, Financial losses, Defame.
North South Severe ill-health and Monetary problems
South North Prosperity and Good health
NorthEast South-West If North-east is highest totally drains out health, wealth, happiness. Owner, wife or eldest son becomes weak financially and physically.
Southeast Northwest If elevation in the south-east is more than North-west and North-east and less than south-west, financial strength is indicated
North-west South-east Thefts, Enmity, ill-health
South-West North-East All-round prosperity and Good health, Success, Education, Intelligence, Knowledge, Good Happenings

For commercial vastu, land which has a slope towards North, East, North-east, and South-east, is considered auspicious. Southwest land should be the highest and Northeast the lowest. North-west should be higher than Northeast and lower than Southeast for commercial vastu.

Somewhere land sloping towards Southeast may be suitable for hotel, restaurant, bakery, furnace and other projects dealing with fire elements like electrical appliances, generators, and inverters. The land which has slopes towards the center portion of the plot or has depressions in the middle is considered very inauspicious for any type of construction whether commercial or residential.

Ancient Literature On Floor Levels

There are total 4 categories mentioned in ancient literature.

Gaja Prishtha:

Koorma Prishtha:

Daithya Prishtha:

Naga Prishtha:

The Sanskrit words:A commercial or residential site is also categorized as Gaja Prishtha, Koorma Prishtha, Daitya Pristha, and Naga Prishtha land on the basis of elevations and slopes in different directions of the plot.

Gaja Prishtha: land elevated in south, West, South-west, and north-west and sloping towards north-east is called Gaja Prishtha. Gaja Prishtha land is very auspicious and provides health, prosperity and good longevity.

Koorma Prishtha: Land which is elevated in the central portion and has slopes in all four directions is called Koorma Prishtha land. In Hindu Mythology, Koorma or tortoise is a very auspicious symbol. A tortoise is an animal which can survive both on land and water, has a very long life and has a tough shield provided by nature. Koorma Prishtha land very benefits and provides happiness and prosperity.

Daithya Prishtha: Land elevated in North-east, East and south-east and depressed in west direction is called daitya prishtha. As the name suggests this kind of land has inauspicious results like loss of wealth and unhappiness and is harmful to sons of the owner of the house.

Naga Prishtha: Land which is longer in East-west, higher in north and south and depressed in the center is called Naga Prishtha Bhoomi. Naga Prishtha vastu is the cause of heavy losses, mental tension, death, and enmity. This is harmful to the wife and children of the owner.

It is easy to rectify any inauspicious elevations or depressions in the plot of land. In case of any elevations in North, North-East, and East, the soil can be transferred toward the West, South-west or south of the Plot. Any pits or depressions in the center or Southwest should be filled up immediately upon the purchase of land.

Pious Vastu shastra is a devoutly invented by great sages which we should need to furthermore research to fit for this latest construction developments. This science is nothing but a divine power. It heals many residents from their chronic problems.

East Floor Height In Apartment And Got Troubled

Respected Sir, just now, I read your article on floor levels. What is the significance of flooring in apartments?. My flat flooring is 2 inches lower than the corridor's flooring. One of my friends advised to change the house or increase the height of flooring to more than east corridors. As per him, it will affect our financial stability, which is actually disturbed ever since we bought the flat. And to be honest, no work is completed without hurdles. Works get close to completion and all of a sudden stops and don't go forward. Please suggest a good remedy to come out from this disastrous situation - Naveen - Mumbai.

Northwest Guest House Is Higher Than The Main Home - Linda - Honolulu

Question: Dear Mr. Suresh, is it ok to build a northwest guest house on higher terrace than main house? About 1/12'-2 feet higher than living room (main floor) or main house. The main house has a lowered floor on north side for large porch?

Dear Linda, If the guest house is not touching the main home, then maximum problems will be eradicated with this tiny height levels of 2 inches. If it is touching the main home, then it won't be auspicious and not recommended to raise the NW than the main home. Further, it maybe seems to be like NW extension. NW extension is not a good idea. North lowered floor is acceptable.

Question: Dear Sir, while we enter into this home, we ascertained the farthest temptation of foyer and a small lawn in East direction. Once we moved to this home, we summoned with many hindrances. One after another issue is involving our backbone and when we solve it, again another trouble malady will be eagerly ready to face. We found a 15 inches ground floor lower level in West direction in this home. Our both bedrooms were 15 inches down/lower level than the main home floor level. To overcome from this bickering feuds, we did many types of remedies, like keeping copper wire, using pyramids, salt techniques, yantras, havan, and many more, but alas! finally, we did not come out of this nightmare. Kindly help us to save our entire family from these destructive and unfortunate situations. I browse your website from the past 10 days, You made a tired stranger's day happy.

Hi Team,

My plot is facing west towards the road and we have the backyard at the east. The main door of the house is facing west and the back door facing east. The water (Kitchen,Rain, Bathroom) is flowing from the north to the south and then takes a turn toward the west and reaches the gutter on the road. There is no way that i can let the water flow towards the NE or E or N side of the plot as there are other houses adjacently. Please advice. I also need to setup an underground sump in the NE/N/E of the house. The sumpo currently is located in the NW portion of the house which has to be closed. Also let me know if i have to close the sump located in NW on a specific day ?

+37 #1 Relevant QuerySyed 2014-04-24 09:58
Dear Suresh,

Thank you so much for posting an article on Up & down slopes and their effects. I was looking for a satisfying answer as locally cannot get a satisfying answer.

There is this Agricultural land measuring Acs.3-93½ cents

EAST : Lands of others
WEST : Land of others
NORTH : Trassing Floor
SOUTH : Irrigation canal

My dad says that a pond or water flow on the south side is really inauspicious for the owner. Local vaastu consultant advises that if we raise the elevation of the south part and make it slope towards north or constructing a wall along the southern boundary would nullify the harmful effects of the field.

What do you think and any suggestions on remedy if any?

Dear Suresh, I am pleased to inform you that like the way you provided consultation for my home and explained to me all the changes required inside and outside home. I really appreciate the diagrams that you prepared for my home with pictures and arrows showing the changes need to be done. Above all, you explained very well the reasons behind changes you recommended for my home with great clarity and sense of humor. No doubt in my mind, you are the best Vastu expert, I really appreciate your dedication by building and maintaining a very informative website that is helping thousands of people across the globe. Also, I sensed when I talk to you and when I was dealing with you, you follow honesty and integrity and you have a sincere desire to help others - Kotesware Rao - Dallas - USA

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been a great pleasure working with him. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA

Hello Sir, My name is Bharathi. Me and my husband have been reading your articles closely. We really appreciate the effort put by you to share your knowledge about vastu and it’s effects - Bharathi - USA.

I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
