Module positions are placeholders in a template. They identify positions within the template and tell the Joomla! application where to place output from modules assigned to a particular position. The template designer has complete control over module positions, creating variations between templates and the respective Joomla! default positions assigned to modules in the installation sample data.

For example the module position "Left" could be used in the left side of the template to display a site navigation menu. So if a module is assigned the "Left" position, it will be displayed wherever the designer puts that "Left" module position - not necessarily the left side of the page.
