Traditions of Vishavakarma Day

Vishvakarma Day is an important festival which is dedicated to Lord Vishavakarma,

Vishwakarma or Vishwakarman is regarded as the God of ‘creation’ in Hindu mythology. It is believed that he is the ultimate creator, the divine architect of the universe, and has created many palaces for Gods in all four yugas.

As with other gods, Vishvakarma is honoured on his birthday. The problem is that since Vishvakarma is the original creator of the world, it is illogical to say he was born on a particular day. Nevertheless, Vishvakarma Puja provides an opportunity to celebrate this important deity.

On this day, people worship Lord Vishvakarma along with tools and instruments that they use in daily for work.
