    Abstract

    A Hindu Temple should be designed to maintain its ancient aesthetics, mysticism, philosophy, design principle, components, quality, nature and comfort. This can be done with incorporating the Vaastu in building Hindu Temples. In Malaysia, there are no rules to govern the religious buildings. Therefore there are no scale to measure the quality of Hindu Temples. The existing Hindu Temples in Malaysia are of many scales; from icons under trees to medium scale temples. This dissertation, A Study on Hindu Temple Planning, Construction and The Vaastu is to analyse the relevance of Vaastu in building a Hindu Temple, with three temples in Pulau Pinang, Malaysia as the case study. Kuil Hindu mesti direkabentuk dengan mengekalkan unsur-unsur purba seperti estetik, mistisisme, falsafa~ prinsip rekabentuk, komponen, kualiri, sifat alam, dan keselesaan. Keadaan ini boleh dicapai dengan menggabungkan Vaastu dalam pembinaan Kuil Hindu. Di Malaysia, tiada peraturan yang khusus untuk pembinaan bangunan beribadat. Maka Kuil Hindu yang terdapat di Malaysia mempunyai pelbagai skala; dari ikon di bawah pokok sehingga ke kuil bersaiz sederhana. Disertasi ini, 'A Study on Hindu Temple Planning, Construction and The Vaastu', mengkaji kepentingan Vaastu dalam pembinaan Kuil Hindu dengan memilih riga kuil di Pulau Pinang, Malaysia.
