It is said that when there was no land, no water and when nothing existed, Lord Vishwakarma created everything. This Puja celebration and worshipping Vishwakarma God is done since ancient times in order to worship and celebrate His birth. People from Bengal often refer to Lord Vishwakarma as Biswakarma God.

Vishwakarma is one of the significant deities in Hinduism who is known as the creator or the designer of the entire world. He is also referred to as ‘Swayambhu’ which is a Sanskrit word meaning self-made or one who manifests self.
In the Moolastambha Purana there is a hymn which states that Vishwakarma God was the one who created Himself when there was absolutely no land, water, earth, air, light, sky or any God. It is believed that even before Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Mahesh came into existence, Lord Vishwakarma created Himself.
According to the mentions in the ancient Holy Hindu Scriptures, Lord Vishwakarma is said to be associated with Lord Shiva as He (Lord Vishwakarma) was born during the blessed Magh Shukla Trayodashi and the Vishwakarma day after Diwali is celebrated with great enthusiasm.
Vishwakarma is said to be the one who constructed many beautiful cities and towns including the city of Dwarka where Lord Krishna grew up. The Bhagvat Purana too mentions Him as the Vedic period architect.
In the Rig Veda, Lord Vishwakarma is addressed as the Godlike carpenter and also is acknowledged as Sthapatya Veda. The word Sthapatya means ‘establishment’ and the word Veda means ‘knowledge’. He was thus famous as the God of creation, an architect and the one who is the creator of the science of mechanics. It is also said that He created divine weapons for God’s and Goddesses.
Why do we celebrate Vishwakarma Day?
The reason why do we celebrate Vishwakarma Puja or Vishwakarma Jayanti is to honour and celebrate Lord Vishwakarma, the Lord of creation. On the occasion of Kanya Sankranti, this Puja is observed. Just after the Ganesh Puja, it is celebrated with vigour and enthusiasm.
According to the ancient Scriptures, Lord Vishwakarma had five faces namely the Sadyojāta, Vāmadeva, Aghora, Tatpuruṣha, and Īsāna. Out of these 5 faces He made five Prajapatis (God who protects and who is the creator) namely Manu, Maya, Twosta, Silpy and Viswajna. Along with these prajapatis He also created five respective Rishis who are the Gothra rishis of Vishwakarma (caste). People often ask ‘who is vishwakarma caste?’ so, the below given gotra rishis are considered as Vishwakarma caste.
The Vishwakarma Puja day is considered highly auspicious and significant by people who are in the business of manufacturing and machine industry. Factory owners, factory workers, welders, artisans, smiths, craftsmen, mechanics, engineers, architects, industrialists, artists and operators too consider this day as auspicious and significant.
The Vishwakarma Jayanti is celebrated with great devotion and zeal in states of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Karnataka, Tripura, Assam, Jharkhand and Odisha.
It is believed that Lord Vishwakarma will shower riches, success and abundance to the business hence before starting any business or setting up a factory, Lord Vishwakarma Puja is performed.
