Bhubaneswar, Sept 16: Odisha is all set to celebrate the Vishwakarma Puja with a religious fervour where the god of architecture and engineering will be worshipped across the state.

The whole state, from the rural suburbs to the cities, has worn a festive look to welcome Lord Vishwakarma with a devotional will to craft something new with his blessings.

It’s why, major manufacturing firms, construction companies, mechanical units, automobile industries, and even traditional architects worship Lord Vishwakarma hoping development of their own products.

Vishwakarma Puja comes after the Ganesh puja in the first new moon fortnight in the month of Aswin(September). It’s the second annual festival of the Hindu community which precedes the Dussehra, the ten-day puja dedicated to Goddess Maa Durga.

Lord Viswakarma is considered the second creator next to Lord Brahma, who has created the Prutwhi (earth), Swarga (heaven) and Patala(hell or the underworld).

Next to the creation of Lord Brahma have been engineered by the divine architect, the Vishwakarma. Thus, Vishwakarma has crafted the idol of Maa Durga, as the first of his creations, after he landed on the earth and manifested as the sole creator of the Tripuras(the three sub-worlds), e.g the earth, heaven, and hell. Then, Lord Vishwakarma created the art & craft world and even crafted the Trinity, Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra, and Goddess Subhadra, according to the Skandha Purana.

The significance of the Puja has been gradually increasing with the development of art& craft, construction engineering, machinery making, and manufacturing units.

In Odisha, Vishwakarma puja is celebrated in large and small-scale industries, MSME enterprises, traditional artisans’ families, and even in domestic households.

Among other industrial hubs, Angul, Jharsuguda, Rourkela, Brajrajnagar, Talcher, Sambalpur, Dhenkanal, Rayagada, and Koraput have taken a glorious look.
