Vishwakarma Puja, also known as Vishwakarma Jayanti, is being celebrated today, 17 September by the Hindu community across the country. The special occasion falls on the last day of Bhadra, which is called Bhadra Sankranti or Kanya Sankranti. On this day, devotees worship Lord Vishwakarma who is said to be the creator of the world. Also, he is credited with the science of mechanics and architecture.
On the occasion of Vishwakarma Puja, factory and industrial area workers worship their tools. They also pray to Lord Vishwakarma for the smooth functioning of their machines and a secure livelihood. On this day, they don't use their tools.
The festival is marked mainly in Eastern states like Bihar, Assam, West Bengal, Jharkhand, and Odisha. Vishwakarma Puja is also celebrated in Nepal. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, no grand celebrations will take place this year.
