Makar Sankranti is among the very few ancient Hindu festivals which are observed based on solar cycles, contrary to other festivals which are determined by the lunar cycles of the lunisolar sacred calendar. The festival is dedicated to the Sun God or even Surya Devta. It’s considered important for religious practices, which explains the reason why folks take holy dip in sacred river Ganges. Although celebrated across India, Makar Sankranti is known by various names in different areas; for Example, Pongal in Tamil Nadu, Maghi at Himachal Pradesh and Haryana, Magh Bihu in Assam, Poush Sangkranti at West Bengal among others.
