From last few years, the south facing houses are considered to be a bad choice and it is probably due to the miss beliefs or rumours spread in the market. Actually, very few people are actually familiar with the rules and guidelines of vastu shashtra, rest all use to follow misconceptions. The fact is that even a South facing house can be good choice but only if the construction is followed as per set rules of Vashtu Shashtra. When you follow all guidelines of Vastu Shashtra and stay in a house that follows south direction then there is nothing superior as compared to that.
The true fact is that as per vastu shashtra all directions are auspicious and are proven to be equally good. But if we go in deep details then it is understood that the superiority of direction matters when one need to take decision about direction of entrance door. Thus, even if you have designed your house by keeping its face towards south direction then also you just need to focus on entrance door placement to welcome good luck inside. When one follows rules or guidelines as mentioned in Vastu Shashtra then it becomes much easier to have auspicious relation with everything inside a house. Studies of Vastu Shashtra reveals that main door of a south facing house should always be placed towards 4th pada. This direction is believed to provide most appreciable results whereas in case if the 4th pada becomes small as per your need then one can prefer to go for 1, 2 and 3 but 4th pada should always be included with them. At the same time, you need to ensure that this main door does not touch the SE corner and the preferred gap between both must be more than 6 inches. The most avoidable padas for South facing house are 5th and 9th.
• The 5th pada of South direction is considered to be the most auspicious one for designing main door of the house. It is actually believed to be the location of God of Wealth, Kuber and it naturally attract wealth. • In case if 5th pada is found to be very small or cannot be useful for your needs then you can go for 1, 2, 3 or 4th pada. But always prefer to include 5th pada along with them.
