Significance of Uttarayan

Uttarayan, as the name suggests, marks the shift of the sun in a northward direction in the celestial sphere. This shift begins on the day after the winter solstice and goes on for six months. The celebration of Uttarayan on the occasion of Makar Sankranti is to mark the event of the sun entering the Capricorn. On this day, people indulge in various community activities, one of the major ones being the kite flying competition.
