History Of Vishwakarma Puja
According to sacred Hindu tradition, Vishwakarma is known as the Divine Engineer of the world. Like every other God, Vishwakarma is assigned a day that is his birthday or Jayanti. The problem with this is that since he is known as the original creator of the world, he existed a few days before he created the world. Thus, it would not seem logical to assign a particular day to his birthday. But many who worship Vishwakarma simply seek a significant day to celebrate and commemorate him.
Many people worship Vishwakarma. Although specifically, Vishwakarma Puja is celebrated by industrial workers, artists, craftsmen, engineers and weavers. The architectural and engineering communities also revere Vishwakarma. Craftsmen also hold the creation of their tools to be the work of Vishwakarma. Hence, craftsmen worship their tools during Vishwakarma Puja or Vishwakarma Diwas. Architects also revere Vishwakarma as he is considered to be responsible for passing on the rules related to the construction of buildings.
Few temples are dedicated only to Vishwakarma, but the temples that do are the Vaishnava temples, where he is worshipped as a secondary deity.
