Which material is best for a home temple?

Material to be used: Temples built of wood are deemed excellent. According to Vastu Shastra, a temple built of wood is auspicious and more holy. Aside from other wood varieties, Sheesham Wood (Rosewood) is considered fortunate for home temples. The temple, on the other hand, can be created from any form of wood. But it should be kept in mind that the main body of the structure should be made of iron or steel as these materials have great resistance to heat and cold.

What are the materials used in ancient temples?

Ancient temples were constructed with building materials. To cover the whole country of India, materials ranging from wood to mud, plaster, brick, or stone are used. The materials influenced the overall aesthetic, building processes, and monumentality of the temple.

Ancient temples were built using local materials available in the area. Therefore, they vary greatly between regions. In general, though, they can be divided into two main categories: wooden and non-wooden temples.

Wood is the most common material used for ancient temples. It can be found everywhere in the form of trees or shrubs. Trees such as bamboos, deodar, kadamba, sal, and sukuya are widely used for temple construction. Shrubs such as chinar, peepal, and rudraksha are also employed. Wood is chosen because it is easy to find in the area and its availability increases community stability. Ancient builders used their knowledge of wood anatomy to select the best trees for specific purposes. For example, engineers would choose strong branches near the ground for use as structural supports while artists would look for thin, flexible branches that don't break too easily under pressure from strings used during ritual dances performed before important ceremonies.

After trees, bricks are the second most common ancient building material used today for temples. They are manufactured from clay found in the region.
