HISTORY OF LAND »
 
While selection of residential land the history of land should be carefully known. If it is not known then all the auspiciousness of the residential place will not be achieved. According to Pouranic scripture “Shilparatna” the land which has been used for funeral purpose or the land in which snakes live or the land where animals have been killed are not good to make residential house. Besides the land where killing, suicide and mass women torture have been held should be avoided for the purpose to construct the residential house.
 
The land on which mosque or such other establishments were existed and after, this land has been transferred as residential place or in the rural area the places of temple, mosque or sacred place to any religion or the land which has been used as the horse stable or the which has been damaged as a result of earthquake or lightening, or even the land which has been used as brick field are also not to be used for residential purpose and this will be better not to construct any residential establishments there. But the land which were used for cultivation or the land which was play ground, fruit tree garden or live stock living place or the place which is used as the meeting place of the people or been used as road or railway are the proper land for residential establishments.
