Krithika Karuppiah is one of the few living Vaastu architects who applies the principles correctly for home and business architecture. She is an internationally known expert in this field. Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati personally mentored her for many years. She accomplished hundreds of designs and is highly skilled at town planning, apartment planning and design, co – housing, individual housing, design of ashrams, health centers, business centers and every other kind of building in which principles of building architecture of Sthapatya Veda and Vaastu Shastras could be applied.

Krithika has taught this science to a number of students under the guidance of Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati and hence has assimilated the technology on a very deep level.

As a board member of The American University of Mayonic Science and Technology, Krithika is a key consultant for the technical aspect of this knowledge. She has contributed to the development of this knowledge and has been instrumental in advancing the knowledge of Vaastu Shastra throughout the world.

I highly recommend her as a bright, competent, aesthetically developed architect.

I have known Sthapati Santhana Krishnan for ten years. He hails from a family who has been involved with traditional architecture for thousands of years. He is one of the world’s only traditional temple architects/ engineers who follow the Vaastu Shastras and Agamas properly in designing and building traditional temples, mosques, churches, and other holy buildings. He is qualified to design and build traditional Hindu, Jain, Buddhist, Muslim, and Christian buildings and statuary and other temple forms. He is also qualified to build non – denominational meditation halls, chapels and temples. He qualified to build homes, businesses, and other non – religious buildings. He is qualified in town planning, building forts, castles, villages, bridges, and any other form of building and engineering covered in Vaastu Shastras.

Sthapati Santhana Krishnan is an internationally known temple architect and engineer. He is qualified to design and create sculptures of virtually any deity or sculpture that would be desired by a client. He has a profoundly qualified staff of Sthapatis (Architects, engineers, builders) and Shilpis (carvers and plasterers) who work together on various projects. One of his colleagues, Sivakumar Sthapati is a world class brick and plaster specialist who is able to execute his work with precision and beauty. 

Sthapati Santhana Krishnan is a Sanskrit scholar and a scholar in Technical Tamil. He understands on a very deep level of the science behind the Shastras and hence builds buildings that are beautiful and vibrant.  

Because he has conducted extensive research in this field, he is able to comprehend the intricacies of design, engineering, and construction at a level beyond most people who work in this field. The beauty and spiritual ambiance created by he and his team is beyond description. He is an advisor to The American University of Mayonic Science and Technology on technical matters and has contributed immeasurably to the development of the teaching of this body of knowledge. I highly recommend Sthapati Santhana Krishnan and his complete team of traditional architects, sthapatis, engineers and shilpis for any project anywhere in the world.

I have known Vaastu Architect Krithika Karuppiah and Temple Architect and Engineer Santhana Krishnan for ten years.  I met them both while studying Vaastu Architecture with Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati – the late doyen of traditional Indian architecture and Vaastu Shastras.  They are both relatives of Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati and have spent many years under his tutelage. Sthapati Santhana Krishnan grew up with this knowledge from infancy.
