Vishwakarma Puja is celebrated on ‘kanya sankranti’ of the Hindu calendar that falls around mid-September as per the Gregorian calendar. It falls on the last day of the Bengali month called Bhadra. This year, Vishwakarma puja will be celebrated on September 16, 2020.

This festival is celebrated across states, like Assam, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha and Tripura. It is also celebrated in Nepal.
