Are you looking for unique pooja mandir ideas for your house? Whether you have a small nook, an entire wall, or just a portion of the wall that you can spare for your mandir pooja, you can work magic with it. Not every house can spare an entire room for pooja and mandir; there are many design choices for installing mandirs with custom designs here. Some important points to note are that –
• The mandir should be North- or East-facing
• The mandir must not face the main door
• It would help if you did not place it next to the bathroom or toilet
• You must keep it in some room, that may be the living room, study, bedroom, or kitchen
5 Mandir Design Ideas that will take up one wall
• Mandir Cabinet with single or double door
You can opt for a Wooden PoojaMandir, a single or double-door cabinet that you can place in any part of the room. The mandir can have sliding panels, drawers, and shelves on which you can keep the lanterns along with the other pooja articles. A Single large cabinet with intricately carved designs of Hindu motifs can be home to the idols of the gods.
• A pedestal stand with shelves
If you don’t want doors for the mandir, you can go for an elegant pedestal stand with cabinets and drawers underneath. The idols of the gods and the lamps can be kept on the pedestal without being covered. You can probably add wall hangings of torans or lighting features to highlight the pedestal. Also, you can give a beautiful backdrop using the wall.
• Large wooden altar
The wooden altar will not have doors, but it will have an enclosed space to keep the god’s idols. Also, there are drawers at the base to store pooja articles. It is a classic design, and among many modern designs, there are the overarching wooden trims of the temple. You can hang diyas and small bells to accentuate the temple. It will also have special space for keeping the larger lamps and the poojathali.
• A small floating wooden altar
If you do not want to keep the mandir on the floor, you can hang a small floating wooden altar on the wall. You can choose a size as per the space available, the design you like, and the number of idols you have. The larger floating altar will be able to bear the weight of heavy icons and lamps. However, the smaller floating altar will limit how much weight it can carry.
• Small walk-in Pooja room Unit
If you want a pooja room, even if you don’t have a separate room to spare for it, you can opt for a walk-in pooja room unit. A small, closed enclosure with intricately carved doors and walls, with a jali design, can be created to make a small room where you can hang images on the walls, and a pedestal can be set up for the idols.
There are many ideas for those who want to dedicate a little nook to their spiritual quest.
