A site with the river flowing from the south to north in the eastern zone is considered as a first-grade site. Such locations are found to be very peaceful and serene. A water body in the northeast brings peace. People experience a tranquil feeling. Water in the northeast zone improves the social connections with the devotees and attract more of them.

Elevation & slope
The site has a slope towards the east, which promotes harmony and brightens the image of the sacred place. It takes place more famous in the entire region. The lower level at the east is always considered auspicious. This will bring name and fame to the temple resulting in the inflow of new visitors. It has enormous potential to become a top tourist destination. Elevated west higher than the east is bound to ensure uninterrupted success.
This temple has a Lord Swaminarayan idol on the west. Even the most famous temples have the same arrangements. When the devotee faces west the deity faces east, there is more open space in the east available in the front. Hence open space in the east zone supports Vastu requirements. This arrangement should not be considered when arranging a temple in the home or offices. It showers beautiful blessings on the devotees and visitors. The big entrance towards the East is called a door of glory. Lord invites people of all sorts to draw close to him during the prayer through an auspicious door.
Five key elements of Vastu generates beneficial energy individually as well as collectively. They are nature’s five angels of positivity, prosperity, and peace.
Following five natural elements of Vastu performs a miracle at such location:-
North East (water element) water flow from south to North & Northeast
South East (fire element) Foodcourt, premvati
South West (earth element) higher zone with temple and admin area
North West (Wind element) Guest area
Centre (Space element) Open to Sky
The presence of the above strong five elements creates a long-lasting positive image for the holy place. These natural forces are well channelized in the Vastu planning of the temple complex. Also, they will prove to be major partners in the success of this divine location.
Vastu gives lots of importance to the entrances. Vastu is all about energy and vibrations. The main entrance of the complex falls in the south zone of the entire plot. It may impact the delay in the implementation of decisions taken by the administration. Due to this prosperity and income of the temple may suffer. Anyways, multiple strong features of these holy places are nullifying the bad placement of the front entrance.
Temple authority should build a pyramid meditation room in the northeast zone to improve the tranquil vibes to the devotees and visitors.
The entrance towards the southeast (Premvati entrance) is more auspicious according to Vastu.
Plant multiple amla tree in the northeast of the complex will further improve the flow of divine vibrations.
We believe that temple will enjoy never-ending popularity and patronage all over the world.
