Abstract: The traditional Indian architecture provides us with deeper knowledge and experiential values, reflecting the essence of cultural and ritual aspects of its society through its intrinsic articulation of spatial and architectural elements that are governed by the strict architectural principles laid in early times of civilisation. It is interesting to note that these principles were aimed at providing guidance for perfect architectural productions and built environment believed to be sustainable, climatically responsive and enhance the well-being of the inhabitants. This paper tries to explore the Green Building Concepts promoted by our ancestors through the established Vastu Sastra principles which are being practised even today mundanely without recognizing the original spirit and intent.
