Vishwakarma Puja or Vishwakarma Jayanti is celebrated on the 16 or 17th, September of every Year. Lord Vishwakarma, the divine god of architecture, is the person who constructed every royal residence of gods, including the heaven itself. He designed the vehicles of gods and their weapons, as well. On this day, machines, instruments are cleaned and painted. A large portion of the factories and shops are closed, and individuals worship Lord Vishwakarma with excellent delight and joy.
