Vastu Tips for Diagonal Plot

The plots in and which the major directions fall in the

corners are known as diagonal plots. As a result the
magnetic meridian instead of passing through the centre of
the plot makes an angle of 45 degree with the main axis of
the plot. From residences to commercial complexes, any
kind of building can be built on diagonal plots. Vastu
Shastra suggests certain tips that will be instrumental in
harmonizing the plot with the surrounding nature. The
diagonal plots can have roads on North-East, the North-
West, the South-East and the South-West sides. Amongst
these plots with road on the North-East side are very
considered auspicious by Vastu Shastra. The North-West
and the South-East ones are of medium level. The ones in
the Southwest are useful for certain business ventures but
these should never be taken for residential purposes.The
diagonal plots with roads on two, three or four sides give
mixed results However the South-West side should not be
used as entrance.
Utility for the Road
1.North-East Road: Residence, Temple, school, Library,
shop and factories
2. North-West Road: Residence, Agricultural purpose,
Showroom for vehicles and Garage.
3. South-East Road: Hotels, Residence, Courts, business
run by women, entertainment, factories etc.
4. South-West Road: Hardware, tyre, permit room,
accident hospitals and orthopedics.
In the diagonal plots the building constructions should not
be oblique or diagonal to the plot. Every construction
should be parallel to the direction of the plot as well as the
adjacent roads.
If oblique construction is done the benefits of Vastu
Shastra cannot be fully reaped. Even if the plot is
diagonal, construction should never be oblique. North-
East direction must have the maximum of open space in a
diagonal plot. The building should be constructed in the
South-West part.
Curved roads adjacent to the diagonal plots should always
be avoided. Even within the compound wall no curve or
oblique cut should be there.
The Western and the Southern angles of a plot should
always be right angle (90)degree. It should not be more or
less than 90degree.
If the Northern angle of a diagonal plot is of 88 degree and
the Eastern angle of 92degree it leads to increase in wealth
but the fame is limited. In such cases it is essential that the
Southern and the Western angles should be of 90degree.
With the East side of a diagonal plot being 88 degree and
the North 92degree one will get fame and publicity.
However the money earned will not stay for a long span of
If in a diagonal plot both the angles on the east and the
North sides measure 92 degree it gives rise to a pentagonal
plot. A person staying in such a plot faces instability. He
keeps on shifting from one job to the other. Wealth is
earned but does not stay long. Avoid purchasing such
plots. If at all purchased it is essential to make all angles of
If in a diagonal plot both the East and the North angles
measure 88degree then in such a pentagonal plot the
North-East direction is totally cut which leads to many
calamities. Form making it useful converts the plot to a
rectangular one.
For a diagonal plot the North-East approach road is very
auspicious. The compound gate can be constructed at this
place. The North-West approach road gives medium level
mixed benefits. In front of the road on the west side the
gate of the compound wall should be constructed. Do not
build the roads in the North direction.
The South-East approach road is beneficial to some extent
for hotels, electric shops, jewellery business run by women
etc. The benefits are of medium level.
While constructing the compound wall of diagonal plots
only the North-East wall should be light and made of
bricks. The South-West wall should be high, thick and
made of stone. The South - East and the North - West wall
should be made of bricks and have a downward slope
from the South to the East and from the West to the
North. The compound wall on the North-East side should
have the lowest height. Instead of a wall even a barbed
wire fencing can serve the purpose. If the diagonal plot has
a South-West road then the gate of the wall compound
should be in the West. The entrance gate should open
towards the North.
In the diagonal plot the well or the boring should be
located in the North-East direction. there should not be
any door of the compound wall or the building in front of
the well. If the well is in the East or the North it would be
quite helpful. Wells at improper places should be filled up
and closed after proper worship.
The gate of the compound in a diagonal plot should in the
South-West direction
Even if there is some fault in the construction of the
building on a diagonal plot the loss is reduced from 100 %
to 50 %. It is because the magnetic meridian is not passing
through the centre. The profits or losses of Vastu Shastra
are of medium level. When the magnetic meridian is
passing through the middle of the plot proper results
cannot be obtained. Therefore, a diagonal plot can be
profitable because the losses are also less.
In the diagonal septic tank or water storage tank should
not be situated in front of the compound gate otherwise it
would lead to many difficulties.
The basement can be located in the North-East direction
on a diagonal plot. However it should not be used for
residential purposes. It can be only used as godown. Good
or medium level benefits can be obtained. Vastu Shastra
does not consider the basement quite auspicious. Hence it
is better if there is no basement on a diagonal plot.
In case of the diagonal plot the principal axis should be
drawn at the centre of the plot. Taking into consideration
the rectangular block of the diagonal plot the principal
axis should be drawn at the centre of the plot. While
drawing it the length and the of breadth of the plot should
also be kept in mind. The plot needs to be divided into 4
blocks. The main building should be constructed in the
South and the West blocks. The East and the North blocks
should be kept open. However more open space should be
left in the North-East side. Vastu Shastra has laid down
rules for the construction of the units that are located
within the plot.
As per the rules of Vastu Shastra all the four corners of a
diagonal plot must be open. The South -West direction
does not come in any corner of this plot; it comes in the
middle of the plot. Hence do not close any corner. a shed,
godown or lumber room can be constructed by taking the
support of 4/9th parts of the compound wall only in the
South - West space.
In the diagonal plot construct a verandah or platform only
on the East, North-East and North sides in one straight
line. Steps to the platform can be constructed, but the
platform must be kept intact.
The staircase should either be in the South block (100%)
or in the West block (80%). these two sides are considered
auspicious. It is far better, if the staircase is in a corner. It
is also not bad, if it is in the middle of the South-West.
While constructing the first floor of the Diagonal Plot,
keep the Eastern, North-Eastern and Northern parts open
for the construction of a terrace. Construction should be
done in the Southern, South-West and West sides.
