A Pooja room is a sacred location in the house where families may connect with their spirituality by praying and seeking solace. Knowing what objects are necessary for the ambiance and function of a pooja room is one of the most important components of creating one.

Essential Pooja Room Items

Idols and Deities

The idols or images of revered deities are central to any pooja room. Depending on personal beliefs and practices, these could include idols of gods and goddesses.

Puja Thali

A puja thali, also known as a dish, holds all the necessary things for worship. It usually consists of an oil light (diya), incense sticks (agarbatti), a bell, a tiny container for sacred water, and a small dish for offerings like flowers or sweets.

Oil Lamp (Diya) with Incense Holder

The lighting of an oil lamp represents the presence of divine energy and is an important aspect of Hindu rituals. Incense sticks purify the air and surroundings and provide a nice perfume.


A bell is struck before and after prayers to ward off bad spirits and to bring worshippers’ thoughts into focus and concentration.

Holy Books

It is normal to keep scriptures such as the Bhagavad Gita, Ramayana, Quran, Bible, or any other religious texts. These serve as prayer and spiritual growth guides.

Rudraksha Mala or Prayer Beads

These beads maintain attention and aid in prayers during meditation and chanting.

Water pots

Many households retain a tiny pot or vessel filled with holy water from a holy location or a river to sprinkle during prayers.

Yantras and Symbols

Some pooja rooms contain yantras, geometric diagrams thought to possess divine qualities, or sacred symbols symbolizing various deities or elements of divinity.
