References of Vaastu Shaastra could be seen in the period of The Ramayan and The Mahabharat.
Ramayana tells us about the seven or eight story buildings. At that time the city of Ayodhya, temples, water storages and gardens etc. were built as per Vaastu Shaastra. When Lord Rama built the Setu (bridge) between India and Sri Lanka he took the help and guidance of Nala the son of Vishwakarma. Nala was a great exponent of Vaastu Shaastra.
Mahabharata tells us about Maya nagari (Indraprastha) and Dwarka.
Maya nagari (Indraprastha) was built for Pandavas to do Yagna.by Maya, an exponent of Vaastu Shaastra, As per the instructions of Lord Krishna a big rectangular tank was built at the center of this city. However, it looked like plain surface. Duryodhan thought it to be a surface and fell in the tank. Lord Krishna knew that the Kauravas would win Indraprastha from the Pandavas with foul means. He had, therefore, asked Maya to build a tank in the middle of the city.As per
Vaastu Shaastra, a tank, well or pit in the middle of the plot or structure leads to its destruction. Hence, Kauravas were ruined totally.
Dwarka.was built by celestial Architect Vishwakarma, Due to omniscient powers Lord Krishna asked Vishwakarma to plan and design the city of Dwarka. Vishwakarma had built all structures following the principles of Vaastu Shaastra. The whole city of Dwarka lived happily and peacefully. As per the directions of Lord Krishna, Vishwakarma had built Dwarka with water all around it. Both of them knew that Dwarka would sink and submerge in water after a specific time. The remains of Dwarka are still found at that place under the sea.
It is clearly visible that Vaastu Shaastra was used even in times of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro.
