What is south facing house

When it comes to knowing the facing of their house, a lot of people are not sure as to which direction does their house face?

The facing of your house is the direction in which you’re going when you go out of your main entrance. For example – if you’re going in the South direction while stepping out of your main entrance, you live in a South facing house.

If you’re going towards the West direction while going out of your main entrance, your house is west facing.

Hope there will be no more confusion in your mind about the facing of your house.

  • The location of the main entrance door in the south direction

  • The slope of the plot on which the south facing house is constructed
  • The placement of septic tank, water bore well, overhead tank, etc.
  • The internal placements of rooms, kitchen, toilet, pooja room, etc.
  • The colors on the walls inside the south facing house and on the façade
  • The location of the internal and external staircase
  • The direction of flow of waste water out of the plot

Common myths and superstitions related to South facing houses:

Most people are very superstitious about South facing houses. They fear that a south-facing house always:

  • Leads to financial losses and doom is guaranteed

You should keep in mind that these are generalized observations. The fact is that all or some of the above may be true in cases that defy the laws of Vastu tips.

Therefore, one cannot and should not ignore Vastu rules while choosing south facing properties.

Advantages of a South facing house

If your house faces south, there are a lot of advantages you have.

  • Increased amount of sunlight they receive during the day
  • Longer hours of light means lower energy bills
  • Better gardening opportunities due to more natural light
  • Good for regions with colder climates

One of the biggest benefits of living in a South facing house is the ample amount of sunlight that you get (provided your house does not face blockages through trees and high-rise buildings).

This is because of the Sun’s path of movement.

The Sun rises in the East and moves towards the South before setting in the West. Around noon, the Sun is exactly in the south direction.

This simply means that all houses facing south will receive sunlight for the most part of the day. This is where the North facing houses as per Vastu have a slight disadvantage. Let’s understand this with an example.

south facing house vastu advantage

If we assume that the sun rises around 6 am and sets around 6:30 pm, a south facing house will typically receive sunlight from 9 am to 4 pm approximately.

Therefore, in places where the general climate is cooler during winters – like North India or hilly regions, it’s a good idea to have south facing houses as per Vastu shastra.

Such houses will receive the natural light and heat to keep the houses warm during winters.

On the contrary, regions, where the temperature rises to extreme levels in summers, should preferably avoid south facing houses.

For example, houses in the southern part of India where the climate is generally hotter should either avoid south facing houses or have thick and high walls to counter the heat.

Even a West facing house as per Vastu receives a lot of afternoon sunlight and must be designed carefully.

Disadvantages of a South facing house

The main disadvantage of a south orientation of a house is again got to do with the sunlight it receives.

  • Increased heat in summers not good for hotter regions
  • If not carefully designed as per Vastu can create serious financial and health problems in life
  • Cannot make an underground water bore well on the front side
  • Longer hours of sunlight means higher AC bills
  • Difficulty in selling because of wrong perception and faulty myths about south facing houses

A house that faces South East or south will receive the morning to afternoon sun rays which are beneficial for the synthesis of Vitamin D within the body.

Mid-day or around noon is the best time to get Vitamin D as the Sun is at its highest point at that time.

On the contrary, a South West facing house will receive the maximum sunlight during the late afternoon.

The sun’s rays at this time emit radiations that are harmful to the human body. Thus, it is ideal to have a house facing south east or south and one should completely avoid a south west facing house.

Who should buy a South facing house?

According to Vastu shastra, south facing plots are not suitable for everyone.

Before you begin your process of plot selection to construct a south facing house, you must keep in mind the purpose of buying the property as well as the business or profession of the occupants. Here We are sharing a few list of professions or occupants suitable for South Facing House –

  • A south facing house is best for people involved in the administrative services like police, IAS, and judiciary.
  • Since the south direction relates to the fire element which represents security and passion, a south facing house makes a perfect choice for people in the armed forces and paramilitary forces.
  • People who are in the business of manufacturing goods or who want to set up a factory as per Vastu can also buy a property facing south.
  • Since the south direction also relates to fame and recognition, people in the entertainment industry like musicians, actors, and directors can also choose a south facing property.

South facing house is good for which Rashi?

A lot of people are keen to know which direction house would suit them the best as per astrology. This is important because astrology and Vastu play a key role in the overall scheme of things in life.

And it also helps in doing specific Vastu for individuals.

Therefore, you must consult a good astrologer before choosing a house.

As a general rule, people with the following rashis (moon sign) can opt for south facing houses:

  • Vrishabha ( Taurus)
  • Kanya ( Virgo)
  • Makar ( Capricon)

Also, since the planet Mars rules the south direction, people involved in professions or businesses related to Mars can choose a south facing house.

Examples of such professions would be property dealers, chefs, surgeons, lawyers, etc.

Businesses related to planet Mars are arms and ammunition, furnaces, fire-related businesses, hardware shops, etc.

An important point to note is that simply buying a south facing home will not make it the best for the people with the above rashis or professions.

They must also ensure to follow the principles of Vastu Shastra while construction.

Now that we have understood the scientific pros and cons of a South facing property, we shall move ahead to discuss some key Vastu tips which you should follow while buying or designing south facing house.

South facing main door/entrance as per Vastu

south facing house vastu main door entrance

If there is one thing that can make or break your life living in a south-facing house, it is undoubtedly the location of its entrance.

This is precisely the reason why all Vastu gurus simply discard any house that has a south-facing main door.

However, the truth is that the south-facing main door can also bring in a huge amount of prosperity and riches to the inhabitants.

This holds true provided the entrance is placed correctly.

The ancient scriptures prescribe certain energy fields in the south where the main door entrance as per Vastu can be placed.

The above image will make it clear. The best location for an entrance in a south facing house is the energy field of Vithatha and Gruhakshat.

An entrance located on the 4th pada of the Vastu Purush Mandala can bring unprecedented wealth, health, and prosperity.

On the contrary, an entrance in the fields of Yama, Gandharva, Bhringraj, etc. can push the inhabitants under huge debts and financial losses. They can also lead to serious health problems.

An entrance in the Southwest corner is a strict no as per Vastu Shastra.

Therefore, it is very important to consult a good Vastu consultant to help you choose the right placement for an entrance.

Some key pointers for a toilet as per Vastu for South facing house are:

  • Avoid having a toilet in the center of the four cardinal directions viz. East, West, North, and South
  • Also avoid a toilet in the four diagonal directions viz, North East, South East, South West and North West

Underground water/bore well Vastu for south facing house 

There is a general tendency to place the underground water tank or bore well in the front of the house. This is good for a north-facing house. But when it comes to south facing house, this could be a disaster.

While doing the Vastu for south facing house, you must ensure that no underground water resources like a tank or bore well are placed in front of the house, i.e. the southern part of the house.

  • Doing so can lead to heavy financial losses and serious health troubles related to the digestive and reproductive organs.
  • It could particularly create problems for the female members of the house.
  • This could also result in court cases and litigation.
  • An underground water resource in the south, south-east, or south-west is a strict no.

Similarly, according to Vastu, it is also very important to place the septic tank carefully. It should never be placed in the exact South zone.

Even a South East septic tank can be extremely dangerous.

You should preferably use light shades of brown, orange or red to paint the façade.

Keep in mind that you should strictly avoid blue, black and grey colors to paint the façade.

It is equally important to wisely choose the colors for the internal walls also. If not chosen properly, colors can lead to serious Vastu imbalances in the house.

The importance of Vastu colors for south facing houses cannot be undermined. The colors you use can make a huge difference in energy flow in the house.

Vastu is all about balancing the five elements in nature called the Panchamahabhutas or Pancha tatvas. Every element or tatva is represented by a color.

It is therefore imperative that we use the right color to balance the right tatva in its respective direction.

Rooms in South Orange, red, pink, brown
Rooms in West White, grey, silver, golden
Rooms in North Silver, grey, off white, light blue, black
  • If you’re using wallpaper, do remember that the base color on the wall should not be an anti-color for that direction. For example, avoid yellow in north and grey in south.
  • The wallpaper colors must also be in accordance with the recommended colors mentioned above
  • It is best to use light shades in the entire house to make it look bigger and brighter
  • Avoid using dark shades as they can evoke extreme emotions among the residents

The roads facing a south-oriented house

If you follow vastu tips, you should completely avoid buying a south facing house when there is a road crossing or a T-point towards the south-west of the plot.

The below image will make it clear:

vastu south west facing house

Height and width of the boundary walls as per vastu

The height and width of the boundary walls also need to be carefully decided.

The height of the southern walls should be greater than the walls in the north and the east. Similarly, the walls in the south should be thicker as compared to the ones in the north side.

The thick walls will absorb the excessive heat during the afternoon and the high walls will protect the house from direct afternoon sunlight.

Do keep this important principle in mind while designing a South facing house Vastu plan.

Slopes of the south facing plot

south facing plot vastu

As per Vastu tips and orientation, the slope of a house or plot should always be towards the North, East or North East of the plot.

One should ensure that the plot is higher on the south side and lower towards the north and east.

This is a universal principle one must follow in all types of structures.

An opposite slope, i.e. a plot sloping towards south brings poverty and ill-health. People living in such houses find it difficult to grow in all aspects of life.

Then takes right turn towards south direction compound wall gate which starts at first pada and slightly ends in third pada.

    Do the south facing do’s and don’ts apply to this house ?

  9. Hello Sir,
    I am bit a confused
    Some Vastu Consultants says since I am a Kanya Rashi Tula Lagna
    South West or South Facing Room is best
    Where in South East direction kitchen is best
    Toilet should be in South South West or
    West North West

    Pls suggest what shall I do to finalize the flat of 1 bed hall Kitchen with Toilet.


    1. The Vastu points you have mentioned are good and a flat if complies to these rules can be a good choice. But in a real world scenario, you’ll find it literally impossible to find a flat with all of these together. Also , do check the entrance of the flat before finalizing.

  10. Hello Sir,

    I am bit confused with different Vastu Consultants logics in Delhi, Some says Vastu is dependent on Date of Birth
    Some says Vastu is always generic.

    I am confused because I am Kanya Rashi Tula Lagna
    Someone says South West or South Facing Flat along with South East Direction Kitchen

    South of South West Toilet / West of North West Toilet

    Are the best for me.

    I am a Saturn governed Zodiac as per Vedic Astrology.

    Pls Suggest sir what is best for me
    Because I have to finalize new place very soon.


    1. Ideally look for the main entrance first. It should be in any of the cardinal directions – North, South, East or West. Other than that, a kitchen in the South or South East is good and the toilets are good in the zones mentioned by you. And since you’re looking for a flat on rent, i would suggest you to avoid getting into the details of astrology because in the real world scenario, you’ll not find anything which complies with all the above rules.

      So simply go for the correct entrance, kitchen and toilet placement.

  11. Hello Sir,

    I am Vikas Singh
    I am Kanya Rashi Tula Lagna as per Vedic Astrology.

    What should be the best Facing Flat for me
    Which Direction should be Kitchen and Toilet for me.

    Someone suggested me South West Facing Room
    Some says North
    Some says South East Kitchen
    Some says South of South West Toilet
    Some Says West of North West Toilet

    I am very much confused sir
    Pls help me understand which is best for me as per my Date of Birth


  12. We were excited to buy a South facing plot. The plot is spacious. There is an apartment building beside it but we thought its not a problem as we where thinking of construction the main house 12-14feet away from it and fill that 12-14ft with plants. But a friend of mine told us in the end that we should not buy a South facing plot which has high rise building on the east side. Now we are completely disappointed and extremely confused about what to do!!!

  13. We were excited to buy a South facing plot. It had good light, air and spacious space. It has an apartment building beside it (in it’s east direction. So we thought we’d leave 10-14 feet gap from the apartment n then build our house and we can use that 10-14 feet space for garden. But suddenly our friend told us that we should never buy a South facing plot which has high rise building on east of the plot. Now we are completely disappointed and extremely confused whether to buy that plot or not!!!

    1. Ideally it is always better to have East open. However, in modern times when land is scarce, it is ok to buy such a house. Do remember to comply with proper Vastu rules in your plot. Also, with regards to a South facing plot, there is no problem with that as all directions are good. However , do take utmost care in placing the main entrance in the South.

  14. Hello Thanks for the blog. I have a question, Can I Buy an east facing plot with a southwest extension. The extension is sizeable so I can get the triangular part of extention carved out as a different land and get it registered in a different name. If I go ahead and construct a house in the rectangular plot, can I use the triangular one as a garden? If I have to build a boundary across by house then I can break the south side of the wall to get an entry to the triangular piece. Please advice.

    1. An extension in any direction is not an ideal situation to have. If you can cut off the extended part and construct a house on a rectangular plot, that’ll be good. However, do remember that the triangle portion that is cut off is still an odd shaped plot. So you must carefully design that by seeking expert opinion .
