Athiti devo bhavah is a Sanskrit verse which literally translates to mean ‘The guest is God’. For centuries, this verse has become the code of conduct for the Hindus who believe in welcoming their guests with immense warmth and open arms. A guest room is where the ‘Athiti’ or the guest stays and just like any other room in the house, it also needs to be built according to vastu. This section will deal with some beneficial advice on Vastu for guest room.
