The phenomenon of Balinese Hindus is now increasingly unique in expressing sradha and bhakti or their beliefs and obedience to the Almighty God and its manifestations (dewa pratista), and also to the presence of purified ancestral spirits (atma pratista). Even though they already have a sacred or refusing sanctuary, in some Hindu societies it is equipped with a holy room, a special room to worshiping God. The family holy place, in the recent era has become marginalized "marginalized", because worship is more often done in the holy rooms. This study is a qualitative research with an interpretive descriptive approach. Data is obtained from literature, interviews, and field observations. Informants were determined by purposive sampling. Data analysis was aided by Bourdieu's generative structural theory. The results of the study show in general, the symptoms of changes in religious practices of Hindus include those related to intellectual, ceremonial, ritual, and spiritual aspects, which lead to an architectural physical form in residential interior arrangement. Habitus, capital (economic, cultural, social, and symbolic) relations with its various forms of conversion, in the realm of Hindu religious practices have crystallized in the practice of adding spiritual rooms to “holy rooms” in the interior arrangements of some Hindus
