Happy Vishwakarma Puja 2020: People associated with most industrial units, big and small, worship Lord Vishwakarma, the god of machines, tools, designs and all things used to build anything - from dams, to houses, locomotives and computers. Offices and factories remain closed on Vishwakarma Puja as the space and the machines are cleaned for puja.
On this auspicious day, workers in factories gather and pray for safe working conditions and success in their respective fields. According to the scriptures, Lord Vishwakarma is considered the divine architect and engineer who built the abodes of other gods. Vishwakarma Puja is celebrated with great fanfare in states like Karnataka, Assam, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
The day dedicated to Lord Vishwakarma falls on the last day of the month of Bhadra in the Hindu calendar.
