Things to consider while placing temple inside homes
The Appropriate Height of the Temple:
The wooden temple inside the homes should be kept at the height appropriate to the seating arrangement. The height of the temple should be appropriate according to the person’s chest sitting position. The main reason for this is to have the Pooja Idols to be kept in front of the person as lowering the height of the temple, means disrespectful to the Lord. Also, in case the height is more than the person’s height it would be difficult for them to actually see the Deities and offer prayers to God. Thus, the basic thumb rule which you should apply while placing the Temple inside your homes is that make Idols’ feet higher than the devotee’s chest.
Why wooden temples are preferable?
The Temples are considered ideal when they are constructed using superior quality wood, as is considered as more religious. As per Vastu Shastra, a Sheesham Wood temple apart from other wood types is considered more auspicious for Home Temple and thus people prefer buying wooden temples for their homes rather than buying any other kind of temple. The temple can be made in any wood types that include Sheesham Wood, Teak Wood, and Mango Wood. Marble Temples are also being preferred but they are a bit more expensive as compared to wooden temples.
It is better to consider correct Vastu Compliant directions at the time of keeping the temple inside our homes.

Also, you should place the diya in the south-east direction of your home. The worshippers must use a mat or carpet or a small stool (pooja chowki) at the time of worshipping.
