On Vishwakarma Puja, devotees begin their day by waking up early, taking a bath, and dressing in clean attire. They purify their place of worship by thoroughly cleaning it and sprinkling Ganga water on it. Using a yellow piece of cloth, they create a swastika symbol with red kumkum. Following this, they place a statue, photograph, or idol of Lord Vishwakarma onto the swastika symbol after offering rice and flowers.

The worship ritual typically starts with the veneration of Lord Ganesha, as is customary in Hindu worship. Lord Ganesha is worshipped first before any other deity. A tilak is applied to Lord Vishwakarma’s forehead, and a lamp is lit. Devotees offer prayers, fruits, sweets, and flowers to Lord Vishwakarma. Mantras are recited to seek the longevity and success of their equipment and businesses.
Following the prayer, devotees seek Lord Vishwakarma’s blessings and distribute fruits and sweets among those present as a gesture of sharing the divine blessings.
