Sao Tome and Principe | São Tomé
Sao Tome and Principe is a small island nation located in the Gulf of Guinea, Western Coast of Africa. The country consists of two main islands which are approx. 140 km apart and are known for beautiful beaches, volcanoes, coral reefs, jungles and much more. This island is famous for the greenery and beautiful sceneries. This entire country total square kilometer is lesser than Delhi in India.
Very few Indians were living in Sao Tome, their population not crossed double digit. As per our knowledge very few Gujarati families living in Sao Tome and doing businesses. If you belongs to Gujarat then this link may helps you to know more about Gujarati vastu.
One Telugu person moving from Libreville to Sao Tome and asked us who is best vastu consultant in Guntur. Some residents always traveling, they likes to travel. Some globe-trots are continuously rounding several places in the world.
One vastu consultant in Panvel also planned to travel Sao Tome, but he withdrawn his tour as he did not get the expected remuneration. Same also happened with one vastu consultant in Thiruvananthapuram. This island is very small, so vastu experts cannot stand here for more days. Infact, they cannot get any vastu consultation here. They may better to search for other places for their consultancy services.
Fortunately, the history of the nation is not much old and the islands were inhabited until 1470 when it was first discovered by the Portuguese explores. Various other explores may have visited the islands but no written or oral history is available.
Also, at Portuguese arrival, there were no people on the island. Afterward, the settlements on the islands started and agricultural production was initiated. Sugar, coffee and cocoa were the main products.
Portuguese ruled the islands for a brief period of time and it was not until 1950’s when the struggle for independence got bolder. Also, all of the colonies in Africa were gaining in independence and was a good opportunity for the country and hence in 1975, the country got its independence finally.
Sao Tome and Principe are one of the most beautiful island nations in the world. Principle features include mountainous terrain, wildlife, lovely beaches, lagoons, volcanoes, and dense forests. This is the reason a lot of tourists visit the country annually.
From the time of discovery till its independence, the country was dependent only on the agricultural sector but today, agricultural accounts only for 14.7% of the total GDP. Services if the largest sector today followed by industries and agriculture.
Cocoa, coffee, sugar, pepper, etc. are some of the agricultural products. Industrial sector consists of textile, food production, construction, etc.
The official and most widely spoken language of the country is “Portuguese”. In terms of religion, “Roman Catholic” is the dominant religion of the country as the first people to settle in the region were Christians, Christianity is the largest religion today on the islands.

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been an incredible delight working with him.. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA
"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as vaastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vaastu Shastra and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - USA
I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
