    Just a suggestion, a nice big phayant or a photo of buddha would look nice and fill up the white space behind.

    Your Chinaraj shd be on the same level as the main Buddha, rather than Guanyin. Normally ppl put 1 Buddha and 2 Bodhisattas, which would be easier to arrange than 2 Buddhas and 1 Bodhisatta.

    This ia a bit female-have-more-say house altar. Try not to put anything on the right, keep about 6-12 inches breathing space for this "green dragon" side, arrangement wise the Phra Chinaraj shud look abit higher that GuanYing as bro Buddho said, alternately you can ask your carpenter to make u the same colour 1-inch 'chair'. Bro Raghav also correct, you might need a focus for your altar, a phayant, photo or even a sheet of colour plastic at the back will do, last resort just paint the wall about 2 feet in height.

    While at it, top up the ashes in the josstick urn to almost the brim. If you need the measurement, about the size of one grain of rice. Water also.

    Noted. I do have a platform that comes with the main bucha.

    Is it OK to move it despite I already house them?

    and right side, are you referring to the chinnaraj side? If so, then I will shift the necklace stand away.

    In fact, my walls are quite full if you happen to see my other thread.
    Photo frames, stickers, TV
    Most of the concepts, are wall mounted.

    Any specific reason for so?

    if too much ashes, it will dirty the altar.
    My area quite windy.

    As for the cup with water, noted. I will filled it up

    Find a good date move abit no prob, if considering Theravada much more not that strict.

    Ya Chinaraj side, try do the arrangement have equal breathing space on right and left side of buchas (not moving altar, the altar positon stay as is). Both GY and Chinaraj shift slightly to center also okay, now your urn is like for the Buddha alone while the two are left out.

    Try to fill abit up to the curve, the feeling like "just abit more to enough, or almost enough" when filling something. Nothing really, just THE feeling.

    Look nice and neat. Though the hangers may be too dark that throw off the other golden colors, I am not fussy about how the whole alter look. You may want to have a gold plate to place those amulets instead of hanging? so that it morph humbly into the whole setting without standing alone on the right and stealing the show. It look like something is missing on the left side of the incense urn...may consider balancing it with another similar size bowl/cup (of water, flower, stackup limes or whatever?). Than again, it look nice to me already.

    thank you for the kind appreciation, it won't be possible without the help of many brothers here.

    well, its your altar, the area that you wanna house buddha.
    its the thought and heart that matters. i been to a temple lately, before i step in, there's a signboard which said this.
    you don't need joss stick or any special offering to buddha, as long your heart and mind, feels like having one, honoring buddha in any possible ways.
    Sorry, translate is not that good. in nutshell, its your heart and mind that matters the most.

    this altar, is also bought off the shelf..
    rm 600+
    only the platform, i did it locally, cost me SGD$200..

    Hi i am sorry i am not aware that this forum talks about what kind of house and what kind of wall we have to worship our buddha. I thought it's for discussion of setting up of altar and what we are praying

    It's OK your own house wall is definitely better than those rented one. By the way I am only for time being staying in a rented one cause my house is under construction. When my house is reafy will show u what i had tailor made. Will not disappointed u FyI
