We understand that not everyone has an extra room at home that they can convert into a pooja room. But, you still want a dedicated space for your pooja unit, don’t you? We have the ideal solution for you. All you need is some free wall space and you’re set! Take a look at these beautiful space-saving wall-mounted mandir designs that can be accomodated in the most compact of homes.

Let your wall do the talking with this subtle and serene wallpaper on your “pooja wall”, if we can call it that. If you are someone who loves plants and greenery, then you will love this pretty idea for you wall-mounted pooja unit. Just add some bells and mount your deities on a wooden ledge to create your very own pooja corner.

Make space for frames

When it comes to wall-mounted pooja units, literally any style of interiors will work. A minimalist wooden pooja unit with a spot light on top and a drawer attached to it (for your pooja samagri), should be sufficient. You will be left with free floor space and a lot of wall space to hang frames and photos of the gods and goddesses you revere.

Mandir Design #3: Jaali Panel

Add an intricate jaali

Who says your wall-mounted pooja unit needs to be dull and boring? While wood is the best choice for your wall hung unit, you can install a jaali panel at the back, to give it a designer twist. For additional space, you can have tiny shelves on either side and place small idols on them.

Mandir Design #4: Wall-mounted Temple

Personally our favourite idea for a wall-mounted pooja unit, this one is a sure winner! This pooja unit gives the illusion of a complete structure, with wooden slats that appear like a dome and a base with drawers that takes care of storage. Two lovely brass bells that complement the wood, and your pooja corner is complete!

Mandir Design #5: Scandinavian Style

When you have a Scandinavian theme going around your home, your pooja corner should be in line. A traditional pooja unit with a carved out structure, sitting atop a wall-mounted base unit will work just fine. This compact pooja unit can find a place in any corner at home.

Mandir Design #6: Created in a Corner

An intricate jaali panel behind the idol exudes a pure divine vibe like no other. And if the panel is back-lit, then it’s a bonus! One wooden shelf underneath and your pooja corner is ready.
