This is also very important. If the surroundings are not good, we suffer in many ways.
Plots that are fertile with plants and greeneries are very good.
A river or big canal in North side and if the water flows from West to East, it is good.
Similarly if the canal is on East side of the plot with water flowing from South to North, that is also good.
Plots with rivers or canal flowing on West or South side of the plot should be avoided.
Hills, hillocks, mounds of Earth, big boulders etc on the Southern, South- West and Western sides of the plot are good: in other sides, it may hamper the progress.
There should be no graveyard, cemetery or tomb adjacent to the plot or in the front or back.
Location of a public place of worship near the plot also affects the inmates. Such a place on the right side of a plot can cause material loss, on left may bring grief and sorrow, in the front can obstruct progress and if they are 100 feet apart, those disastrous results are minimized.
Similarly avoid having plot near to Cinema-theatres, schools and colleges.
