Makar Sankranti

Written by HCUK Webmaster on . Posted in FESTIVALS & CELEBRATIONS

The festival of Makar Sankranti falls on 14th of January every year. This day is celebrated as a festival right from the times of the Aryans by the Hindus. This festival is celebrated differently in different parts of the country yet the use of til (sesame) is found everywhere

In Maharashtra people exchange multi-coloured tilguds and til-laddus made from til and jaggery. There is special significance of taking holy dip in Sangam – confluence of three rivers, Ganga, Jamuna and Saraswati.
