Shermukhi and Gaumukhi Plots


Selection of a plot site is just like as to select a compatible life partner, care should equally be taken while selecting your plot site too. Plots which are narrow in front and wide in rear are called Gaumukhi. And Plots that are broad in front and narrow at back are called as Shermukhi plot. 

According to Vaastu Shastra avoid the plots which are triangular, circular, oval, and other irregular shapes. Avoid site close to religious places and nearby to factories and industries which might give disturbance to you.


Two specific plot shapes have a lot of wisdom and they are the Gaumukhi and Shermukhi plots.

Gaumukhi and Shermukhi plots characterize two extremes of the spectrum; the Gaumukhi stands the best that land shape can offer.  Whereas the Shermukhi plot stands for confusion and that land shape could bring destruction.Gaumukhi-Plot

In simple Gaumukhi leds to prosperity and Shermukhi exact to the opposite.

Gaumukhi plot: Plots which are narrow in front and wide in rear are called Gaumukhi plots. Gaumukhi plots are good for residential purposes, when roads are provided on southern and western sides. These plots are not good for commercial purposes.  

Shermukhi plot: Plots that are broad in front and narrow at back i.e. where the front part is more in width are called Shermukhi plots. These plots are supposed to unfavorable for residence but favorable for business purposes, provided the road is on eastern and northern side.



The two symbolisms are easy to remember and understand. The Cow (Gau) on the one hand represents the best of everything and the Tiger (Sher) a Shermukhi plot always run into serious difficulties such as insolvencies and, some were finished altogether.

Not all plots are square or rectangular in shape. Here are some plot shapes with projections or extensions, and missing/ cut corners, with their effects are given here-under.

  5. Vighnesh Bala says:

    Namaste Sir,
    2 questions for you :
    1) My plot is having road on the East (house facing East). The South side is straight (90degree angle) and the North side is at an angle (about 20degree angle) , so it is wider on the West side. Is this considered as a Gaumukhi plot? Is this considered to have a dosha because the north west is projected north?
    2) The South West of this plot is sloped down (soil level is below the North East). But when we keep a tall fence (6 feet), the top of the fence will be above the soil level in the North East (I plan to leave the North East open without fence). The plot in general is sloped towards the South. Is this still considered to have any dosha?
