VISHWAKARMA Puja, also known as Vishwakarma Jayanti or Bhadra Sankranti, is being celebrated today with great favour and joy across the country. It is predominantly celebrated in the Indian states such as Karnataka, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Bihar and Tripura. This auspicious festival is observed for Lord Vishwakarma, the divine architect.

This day is observed to celebrate the birth of Lord Vishwakarma, the architect, who constructed the holy city of Dwarka where Lord Krishna ruled and also created many outstanding weapons for gods such as Lord Shiva's Trishul, Lord Vishnu's Sudarshana Chakra, Lanka King Ravana's Pushpaka Vimana and Indra's Vajra.
