A brahmasthan is a unique feature of Vedic
architecture. Vedic architecture is based on Vastu Shastra, the Indian science of space and architecture designed to create environments that supports physical and spiritual health and prosperity.
The brahmasthan is a special central zone in a building. It should be free from any obstructions in the form of a wall, pillar or beam, and is often well lit from above, by skylights for instance. This area should also not contain any fixture, cabinets, toilet, staircase or other distration.
