According to the vastu shastra ‘the facing of a house’ refers to the direction in which the main entrance of the house is located. The direction in which the main entrance of a house is located plays a vital role in the lives of the residents of that house. It is the main entrance from where the cosmic energy comes into your home.
The North Facing House, in general, is considered to be a very auspicious house. However, it is a half-truth. North facing house can be auspicious or inauspicious, depending on the overall vastu of the house. Though, there are certain advantages of having a north facing house, but as per vastu none of the direction is good or bad in itself.

FINDING THE DIRECTION OF THE HOUSE–
Finding the facing of your house is extremely important as a difference of even 3-4 degrees will make the entire calculation of 16 vastu zones inaccurate and then it will be difficult for you to find out the root cause of the problems.

Finding the accurate facing of the house is not a rocket science. All you need to do is to follow these steps:
- First of all, stand outside of the main entrance of your house with house at your back and the compass in your hand. Stand with your back parallel to the house.
- Hold the compass flat (horizontally) on your palm in front of your chest.
- Now, let the compass needle (usually a red or green colored orienting arrow) float freely until the zero degree mark on the compass and the North end of the needle are aligned. It will determine the magnetic North.
- After confirming the magnetic North, write down the direction which you are facing.
- You will now have an accurate facing.
While Using A Compass, Make Sure To Remember The Following:
- Remove all the magnetic objects around the compass
- Remove all jewellery on hands
- Hold the compass at waist level
- In order to determine the accurate direction, take at least 3-4 readings in and outside the property and confirm the one which you get the maximum number of times.
THE PLACEMENT OF MAIN DOOR/ENTRANCE–
The main entrance of the house holds a very important place in the vastu. It connects a home to the cosmic consciousness. Since it is the main entry point for the cosmic energy into any building, it plays a vital role in the lives of the inhabitants of that building.
According to vastu shastra there are 32 gates out of which 9 gates are considered very auspicious and 3 out of these 9 gates are located in the North direction.
The main entrance of any North facing house should be located in the following Padas (gates)-
- N3 or Mukhya (337.5° - 349°)
- N4 or Bhallat (349° - 0°)
- N5 or Soma (0° - 11°)
As you can see in the picture, we have highlighted the most beneficial gates in the blue color for a North facing house. (More on Main Gate Vastu - @MainGateVastu)
