This Vedic demigod is accredited as being the best architect for the demigods. According to the literatures, the various palaces and cities of the demigods have all been built b Vishwakarman Ji. The Sthapatya Veda – the scripture of buildings was compiled by Vishwakarma Ji and he described the origins of ‘Vasthu’ – successful living by organising the areas of one’s home.
According to belief, he was responsible for the weapons and chariots of the demigods also, and therefore worshipped by those in the armed forces and by those who have acquired new vehicles, houses etc. He is worshipped today mainly by those of the architecture, building and designing professions for success and guidance in their work.
