Vedi literally means ‘altar’.


Vedic sacrifices need a special kind of platform or altar usually situated in a śālā or sacrificial shed. Such an altar is called Vedi. It is an elevated plot of ground built or prepared according to the dimensions prescribed in the Śrautasutra works. These dimensions are fixed in proportion to the height of the sacrificer. Different yāgas need vedis of different shapes. The vedi is covered with darbha grass on which the various vessels and implements are arranged.
