Vishwakarma ("VISH-wah-kur-MAH") is the Hindu god of architecture.
When Shiva married Parvati, he asked Viswakarma to build a beautiful palace for them to reside. So Vishwakarma built a palace made of gold. For the housewarming ceremony, Shiva invited the sage, Pulastya, to perform a Graha Pravesh ceremony. After the sacred ceremony, Shiva asked Pulastya to ask anything in return as Dakshina, or a donation. Pulastya asked Shiva for the golden palace itself as he was overwhelmed with its beauty and grandeur. Shiva was obliged to accede to Pulastya's wish, which Lanka became the palace of his grandson, Kubera, who was later overthrown by his half-brother, Ravana.
