When is Vishvakarma?

This regional festival is celebrated on the day after Diwali.

In some parts of India, it may be celebrated on 17 September as the festival is based on a solar calendar.

Traditions of Vishavakarma Day

Vishvakarma Day is an important festival which is dedicated to Lord Vishavakarma, who is regarded as the divine engineer and architect of the universe.

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.
