A mandir is a sacred place which creates a positive atmosphere and infuses spiritualism and holy thoughts amongst people. A temple serves as a link between man and God, so creating a mandir in your home can help bring about a virtuous aura in your abode. Since a home temple is a place where you will be spending time in meditation and personal reflection it should be comfortable, elegantly designed and exhibit tranquility.

So if you are planning to build a temple in your home or are looking forward to revamping your existing one, here are a few home temple decoration ideas that will help you create the ultimate sacred corner.

The right colours

Though there are a multitude of colours, it is necessary to choose the colours wisely when decorating your home temple. Shades that provide a soothing and calming look and are more in tune with nature will be the ideal choice for your temple. White is the natural choice because it exhibits simplicity and purity; however, gold, light green, pink and light blue will also make your home temple appear more unique. 

Seating arrangement 

A temple is a place of worship and you will be spending significant time in meditation and prayers. So you need a seating arrangement that is comfortable and will help you meditate in peace without any distractions. Soften up the hard floor by placing fluffy mats or rugs on it. You can also invest in some elegant cushions. Stools and chairs can be placed at convenient spots for people who have difficulty in squatting on the floor.

A minimalist approach 

A minimalist approach is best suited for those who prefer a simple and soothing prayer corner. Use a white wall as a background for your home temple and complement it with incense, soft lights and candles. A simple prayer corner will help you focus while meditating and will create a calming ambiance. 

Bring in the natural element 

Offering prayers amidst fresh air and greenery is beneficial for the body and mind. But by using natural elements in decorating your temple, or by choosing a good location you can connect the prayer space with the great outdoors. If you live in an independent house which comprises a green area, you can move the temple near the entrance or any other part that has a window opening up into the garden. Besides having a perfect view of the greenery, you can also let in the fresh air by opening up the window during prayer time. Meanwhile, you can use natural elements like wood when designing the temple. It will help connect you with nature.


Brighten up your temple with the use of elegant lights. Though decorative lights can give a graceful touch to your temple, candles, and diyas can make the sacred place look more natural. Soft-focus lights will help usher in positivity and make the area look more inviting. If you want to make the temple more aesthetically appealing, light up the temple’s roof. If space permits, use a chandelier on the roof to provide it with a quaint look.

Choose an ideal spot

If you do not have a temple in your home yet, you will first have to find a suitable corner to set up a mandir. However, in today’s compact and modern homes, space is usually a luxury. Nevertheless, you can always use your creativity and turn any corner into a sacred space. Make sure that the temple is located in a quiet place away from the noise and hustle and bustle. Whether you set up a temple under the staircase, in a corner of your bedroom or living room or any other part of the home, ensure that the surroundings are peaceful. If you are planning to buy property, you can search for homes that come with a dedicated temple. There are plenty of such properties available on Blox, one of India’s premium real estate buying platforms.


If space is a problem and you are unable to find the perfect spot for your temple, you can use curtains and drapes to create a cosy space where you can meditate or pray. Hanging elegant curtains that match the decor of the temple will add more grace to the area. Besides, curtains and drapes will also help create a divide between the mandir and the rest of the home, thereby helping you meditate peacefully.

Final words

These are a few home temple decorations ideas that you can use to embellish your sacred space. Soft instrumental music, wall decor, prayer beads and similar accessories will provide the temple with a personal touch. However, remember to create a holy space that will resonate with your soul and make your mediation more enjoyable.
