A very powerful direction. The direction is owned by Lord INDRA.
Indra is the Hindu deity responsible for rains, overall prosperity, festivity and power. The representative planet for this direction is Lord Sun which itself is a big power that nobody can match. Sun gives growth to life, vegetation etc. After the north, east should be very much open, light & clean. Making heavy walls, not providing the ventilation, doors & windows gives stagnation in life. Making dining room, bedroom, bathroom & storage for grains and food in the eastern direction is advisable.
