The beginning of vastu shastra may have occurred well more than a huge number of years back. The scholarly men of those days might not have lived in houses themselves yet they without a doubt committed their lives to the improvement of the science "vaastushastra" or "vaastu", as today is popularly known.

The standards of the science set down during those days depended absolutely on the impact of sun rays during various times. The perceptions and remedies made were noted and finished up simply after top to bottom screening of the circumstance.

Vastu is a piece of Vedas, which are accepted to be four to 5,000 years of age. Through repentance and reflection yogis of that period procured answers accepted to have originated from the enormous brain itself to their inquiries. Subsequently Vedas are paid attention to with divine information. The craft of Vastu begins in the Stapatya Veda, a piece of the Atharva Veda.

It used to be a simply specialized subject and it was just kept to architects (Sthapatis) and given over to their beneficiaries. The standards of development, engineering, mold and so forth., as articulated in the stories and treatise on sanctuary design, have been joined in the study of vastu. Its portrayal is there in sagas like Mataysya Purana, Skanda Purana, Agni Purana, Garuda Purana, and Vishnu Purana. There are some other antiquated shastras that disregard the information on vastu shastra to people to come, such as Vishvakarma Prakash, Samraangan Sutradhar, Kashyap Shilpshastra, Vrihad Sanhita, and Praman Manjaree.

In the Mahabharata it is said various houses were worked for the rulers who were welcome to the city Indraprastha for the Rajasuya Yagna of King Yuddhistira. Sage Vyasa says that these houses were as high as the peak of Kailasa mountains, maybe implying that they stood tall and glorious. The houses were liberated from blocks, had mixes with high dividers and their entryways were of uniform stature and trimmed with various metal decorations. It is said that the site plan of Ayodhya, the city of Lord Rama was like the arrangement found in the extraordinary building content Manasara. References are likewise to be found in Buddhist writing, of structures developed based on Vastu. They contain references to singular structures. Ruler Buddha is said to have conveyed talks on engineering and even told his teachers that managing the development of a structure was one of the obligations of the request. Notice is made of cloisters (Viharas) or sanctuaries, structures which are mostly private and somewhat strict (Ardhayogas), private storeyed structures (Prasadas), multi-storeyed structures (harmyas) and Guhas or private structures for white collar class individuals.

The Vastu, with the word signifying ‘dwelling’, is accepted to be the living spots of god and human. As per its cutting edge meaning it covers all structures independent of their utilization like living arrangements, ventures, business foundations, lodges, inns and so on. It depends on the five fundamental and basic components, for example, Vayu (air), Agni (fire), Jal (water), Bhumi (earth) and Aakasha (space), which are known as Panchabhutas. Everything on earth works upon these elements.
