But those who are celebrating today they are celebrating like the biggest day in the earth. It is not declared as a public holiday by the government but for the group who are celebrating today, it is more than just a government holiday.

Today is the day of Lord Bishwakarma. ‘The bishwakarma Puja’. God Bishwakarma is considered as a god of construction additionally god of tools, equipment and machinery in the Hinduism. According to purana, Lord Krishna asked Bishwakarma to build the Dwaraka City, and following Kishna’s order, Bishwakarma was devoted to build the best city.

It is celebrated in 1st day of 6th month of Nepalese calendar which is on the 17th September on the year 2014. Finally another interesting side of this festival is this festival is not associated with any temple unlike other remaining festivals of Nepal.
