GUWAHATI, Sept 18 - Along with the rest of the country, Biswakarma Puja was celebrated across the State with much pomp and gaiety.
Celebrated on September 17 every year, Biswakarma Puja, the ritual of revering the deity of architecture, was celebrated by offices, workshops, industrial units and business establishments in a grand manner.
Located in the Kamakhya Gate area, the Biswakarma Temple, the only one of its kind in India, witnessed a large number of devotees who thronged the temple since early morning to pay obeisance to the deity and seek blessings for prosperity.
The management committee of the temple made special arrangements for the day.
In Guwahati too, establishments, including the media houses, celebrated the occasion with day-long programmes. The brightly illuminated Assam Tribune campus witnessed the presence of a large number of people who came from far-flung areas of the city to have a glimpse of the illumination.
The rituals on the Assam Tribune campus began early on the day and the footfall reached its crescendo in the evening once the illumination was at its best. For many, especially the youngsters, the Assam Tribune campus with its eye-catching illumination and water fountain, virtually turned into a selfie zone.
Nagara Naam by two reputed troupes of the State was organised in the evening. The programme was inaugurated by Dainik Asam�s Executive Editor Munin Bayan.
