At Sri Yug Constructions, we understand that building successful shopping malls and complexes goes beyond mere bricks and mortar. It's about creating an inviting and vibrant environment that fosters positive energy and attracts customers. Vastu Shastra, the ancient Indian science of design, offers valuable insights into optimizing the layout and energy flow of your commercial space, ultimately enhancing the shopping experience for both customers and businesses.

The Power of Design:

Vastu Shastra emphasizes harmonious design principles that create a balanced and positive flow of energy throughout a space. By incorporating these principles in your mall or complex design, you can:

  • Attract customers and foot traffic: A well-designed layout with positive energy flow is believed to be more inviting and appealing to customers, encouraging them to spend more time and money in your space.

  • Enhance business success: By fostering a positive and harmonious environment, Vastu Shastra is believed to promote better business prospects and increased profitability for shops and businesses within the complex.

  • Create a tranquil and enjoyable experience: A well-designed mall, using Vastu principles, can contribute to a more relaxed and enjoyable shopping experience for customers, leading to higher satisfaction and repeat visits.

Key Vastu Considerations for Malls and Complexes:

  • Plot Shape: Ideally, the plot should be square or rectangular for optimal energy flow.

  • Entrance: The main entrance should be placed in the north, east, or northeast zone, welcoming positive energy and customers.

  • Shops and Showrooms: Ideally, shops should be square or rectangular and positioned in the east, south, or west zones. Avoid placing them in the northeast or southwest corners.

  • Restaurants and Food Courts: These are best placed in the southeast zone, as this direction is associated with fire and digestion.

  • Toilets and Utility Areas: These should be located in the northwest zone, away from the main shopping areas.

  • Open and Central Spaces: Maintain ample open space in the central area of the mall to promote a sense of spaciousness and positive energy flow.


  • Professional Guidance: Consulting a qualified Vastu expert is recommended to ensure a comprehensive and personalized approach to your mall's design, considering the specific layout and features.

  • Beyond Rules: Vastu Shastra offers guiding principles, not rigid rules. Adapt and integrate them into your existing design concepts and architectural plans.

Creating a Harmonious Shopping Experience:

By incorporating Vastu Shastra principles alongside modern architectural expertise, Sri Yug Constructions strives to create thriving and successful malls that:

  • Attract and retain customers.

  • Foster a positive and prosperous environment for businesses.

  • Offer a delightful and memorable shopping experience for everyone.
