The much-revered Vishwakarma Jayanti marks the birthday of Vishwakarma – the Hindu god of craftsmen and architects. Lord Vishwakarma or Bishwakarma (As Bengalis refer) is Lord Brahma’s son and known as the divine craftsman of the whole universe. He is hailed as the official builder of all the gods’ palaces too.
This year it is being celebrated on September 17, 2021. Vishwakarma Puja is marked on Kanya Sankranti as per the Hindu Calendar.
Falling on the last day of the Bengali month of Bhadra, the day is celebrated in a way where devotees organise pujas at their workplace, decorate their offices with flowers and the like.
Here’s wishing a Happy Vishwakarma Day to all!
