This vedha can create heart trouble, mental retardation, insanity and paralysis etc. In addition to this, health of the family members suffers.
Parvat Chhaya Vedha
If a mountain is situated towards east of the house and its shadow falls on the house, then this is considered to be parvat chhaya vedha. This prevents or hinders the progress and fame of the residents. For this reason a house should not be constructed in such a place.
Vriksha Chhaya Vedha
If a tree casts its shadow on the house between 10AM and 3PM, then it is considered to be vriksha chhaya vedha. This vedha stops the progress, so the house should not be made near a large tree.

- Presence of milk oozing trees in the courtyard (angan) cause monetary losses. So trees like Banyan, Aak, madar etc. should not be planted in the courtyard.
- Bananas, almonds, dates, mangoes, grapes and berries etc. should also not be planted in the courtyard.
- Trees belonging to the gods should also not be planted in the courtyard. Banana belongs to Gandharva while oleander (red kaner) belongs to Sun god, so these trees should not be there in the courtyard. Peepal and sandalwood trees can be planted there, but not in front of the main door.

Sometimes a lane or a road reaches a dead end and the plots located near the dead end are known as the closed (band) plots or prisoner (kaidi) plots. These plots are not suitable for residential purpose, so these should be discarded.
Location of a childless person’s house or a washerman’s house, a flour mill or the furnace of a blacksmith in front of the plot is called sthan vedha. Similarly location of a funeral ground or a cemetery near the house also becomes a sthan vedha. Residential house should not be constructed in such a location.
If a feeling of fear or loneliness descends upon oneself after entering a house, then such a house is supposed to have drishti vedha. Residents of such a house are affected by poor mental and financial condition.
Results of a house near a temple
People residing in a house located near a temple repeatedly keep coming under the influence of devalaya vedha, which is the dosha caused by the gods of the temple. According to Shiva purana, a house should not be constructed within the range of 100 feet of a temple because the residents will keep on suffering because of Dhwaja dosha. According to the shastras no one should urinate or defecate within 100 feet of the temple. Such an action results in suffering due to deva dosha. It is inauspicious to reside near a Shiva mandir. Rudra resides in it along with his followers who are ghosts and goblins and they keep troubling the people residing nearby. Since Rudra dev is fierce and aggressive, the nature or the people residing nearby also becomes aggressive.
This causes constant bickering and friction amongst father and son and amongst brothers. If the temple near the house belongs to an aggressive deity, then the residents have to suffer more. People living near a temple of Hanuman ji have to suffer because of poverty, misery and sorrows. Temperament of Kalika and Chamunda devis and Rudra is aggressive, fierce and violent, while that of Lakshmiji, Parvatiji, Vishnu ji and Balaji is satvik, calm and peaceful. In any case temple should not be made inside the house. There should be a place for Puja in the house where pictures and small idols of the Gods should be kept.
