Vishwakarma's Architectural Wonders:
Hindu mythology is full of Vishwakarma's many architectural wonders. Through the four 'yugas', he had built several towns and palaces for the gods. In "Satya yuga", he built the Swarg Loke, or heaven, the abode of the gods and demigods where Lord Indra rules. Vishwakarma then built the 'Sone ki Lanka' in "Treta yuga", the city of Dwarka in "Dwapar yuga", and Hastinapur and Indraprastha in the "Kali yuga".
'Sone Ki Lanka' or Golden Lanka:
According to Hindu mythology, 'Sone ki Lanka' or Golden Lanka was the place where the demon king Ravana dwelled in the "Treta yuga." As we read in the epic story Ramayana, this was also the place where Ravana kept Sita, Lord Ram's wife as a hostage.
There is also a story behind the construction of Golden Lanka. When Lord Shiva married Parvati, he asked Vishwakarma to build a beautiful palace for them to reside. Vishwakarma put up a palace made of gold! For the housewarming ceremony, Shiva invited the wise Ravana to perform the "Grihapravesh" ritual. After the sacred ceremony when Shiva asked Ravana to ask anything in return as "Dakshina", Ravana, overwhelmed with the beauty and grandeur of the palace, asked Shiva for the golden palace itself! Shiva was obliged to accede to Ravana's wish, and the Golden Lanka became Ravana's palace.
Among the many mythical towns Viswakarma built is Dwarka, the capital of Lord Krishna. During the time of the Mahabharata, Lord Krishna is said to have lived in Dwarka, and made it his "Karma Bhoomi" or center of operation. That is why this place in nothern India has become a well known pilgrimage for the Hindus.

In the present "Kali Yuga", Vishwakarma is said to have built the town of Hastinapur, the capital of Kauravas and Pandavas, the warring families of the Mahabharata. After winning the battle of Kurukshetra, Lord Krishna installed Dharmaraj Yudhisthir as the ruler of Hastinapur.
Vishwakarma also built the town of Indraprastha for the Pandavas. The Mahabharata has it that King Dhritrashtra offered a piece of land called 'Khaandavprastha' to the Pandavas for living. Yudhishtir obeyed his uncle's order and went to live in Khaandavprastha with the Pandava brothers. Later, Lord Krishna invited Vishwakarma to build a capital for the Pandavas on this land, which he renamed 'Indraprastha'.
Legends tell us about the architectural marvel and beauty of Indraprastha. Floors of the palace were so well done that they had a reflection like that of water, and the pools and ponds inside the palace gave the illusion of a flat surface with no water in them.
After the palace was built, the Pandavas invited the Kauravas, and Duryodhan and his brothers went to visit Indraprastha. Not knowing the wonders of the palace, Duryodhan was flummoxed by the floors and the pools, and fell into one of the ponds. The Pandava wife Draupadi, who witnessed this scene, had a good laugh! She retorted, hinting at Duryodhan's father (the blind king Dhritrashtra) "the son of a blind man is bound to be blind." This remark of Draupadi annoyed Duryodhan so much that later on it became a major cause for the great war of Kurukshetra described in the Mahabharata and the Bhagavad Gita.
History of Vishwakarma People
Above 5000 Years, The Vishwakarma People are Well Known as Main Seed of All Arts, Architectural Intelligents and Creators of Hindu Religion and Temples in Entire India. They are coming from Sri Vishwakarma's Five Sons Inheritance. Their names are Manu(Black Smiths), Maya(Carpenters), Twosta(Tin Smiths), Silpy (Sculptors) and Viswajna(Gold Smiths). From First Invader Greek Alexander to All Invaders, Foreign Visitors and Foreign Touristers have been Amazing and Wondering about their Creations Such as Temples, Sculptures, Weapons, Golden, Metal made and Wooden Things.
But Now-a-days, 90% of this Vishwakarma People Felt into Poverty, Illiteratcy and Regular Jobless. Because they forget to worship their Main Gods Sri Vishwakarma and Sri Gayathri Devi. These are Pointed out with very sorrow by Swamiji Maharaj SriSri Vishwakarmaputra Maharishi, Utterpradesh.
Some Vishwakarma People asked Doubtly the Question, Who are We? Saiva? or Vaishnava?. Truly Vishwakarma People are Not Both Saiva and Vaishnava. Basically Hindu Dharma or Religion Includes Many More Religions, Regoations into Itself. They are Saiva(God Siva's Own Religion), Vaishnava(God Vishnu's Own Religion), Ganapathya (God Ganesh's Own Religion), Sowmar (God Sun's Own Religion), Gowmar (God Karthikeya's Own Religion), Sakkiya (Goddess Parvathi's Own Religion) and Such as More Religions and several Rogations are now organized Under the Name Of Hindu Dharma or Hindu Religion. As Like As Vishwakarma is not only Meaning of Separate Race also Special Religion and This is No.1 Religion of Hindu Dharma. Basically we Forgot this or are Forgotten this. That Mistake is the Main Hole Of their All Troubles.
