The Vishwakarma came out of the great churning of the ocean and known as Samudramanthan in the Hindu religious text. He is the engineer, architect, artist and designer. It is he who is the designer and maker of the weapons for the gods and packed it with the magical power. It is him who designed the Vajra for the Indra from the sage Dadhichi’s bone. Indra used it to kill Britrasura. He is the sole architect of the heavenly abode of Trilok the Swarga, Marty and the Patal for the beings of the universe including the gods.
The legend says that the Lord has crafted the city of Dwaraka overnight, the capital where Krishna reigned in the Dwapar era. In the Satyayug Lord Vishwakarma designed and crafted the Swarna Lanka or the golden Lanka for Lord Shiva and ultimately gone to the mighty Ravana the Rakshasa king. It was Vishwakarma who designed and made the Palace in the city of Indraprastha for the Pandava king Judhistir. So, in a way the Lord Vishwakarma is the concept of a designer and architect and a master technician in the Hindu Mythology. He is mentioned in the Rig Veda and other old scriptures. He has four hands and holds the Vedas, a noose, a water pot and craftsman’s tool in his hands. His mount is elephant and consort is Gayatri Devi.
