Prayer and faith are part of an extremely personal journey. Agree? But, the space constraint in our homes prevents us from having a traditional pooja room to facilitate spiritual growth. However, we say all you need is a small nook or room to accommodate a traditional design. Don’t believe us? Take a look at these top traditional pooja mandir designs from Livspace homes.

Wooden carvings are a common feature of traditional mandir designs

Indian pooja mandir designs commonly have wooden carvings on the door. These intricately chiselled spaces on the pooja mandir door give you a sneak peek into the mandir, without compromising on privacy. Additionally, it allows for the divine fragrance of the incense sticks or cones to waft into the house, or the glow of the lamp to light up the space. In these pooja room images, there are two types of wooden carving designs to give the space an extra dimension.

#2: Temple Bells for a Traditional Mandir at Home

Bells are always synonymous with temples

Any temple in India, big or small, will feature at least one towering bell in front of the main deity. When little bells are introduced in a pooja unit design, it adds a divine touch to the mandir, and makes you fondly reminisce about your favourite temple. In these pooja room images, the combination of stained wood, brass bells and sculptures enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home.
