Makar Sankranti is celebrated every year on 14th January. This festival is devoted to the god SUN.
It is one of the few festivals in Hindu calendar, that are celebrated
according to solar chakras, whereas most of the festivals are celebrated according to the moon chakras.
On this festival, the sun transits from Sagittarius to Capricorn and also from this day the rotational motion of the Sun begins.
Another belief is that the father SUN goes to meet his son Shani, as Shani Dev is the master of Capricorn, hence it is known as Makar Sankranti.
