The most significance of Makar Sankranti is during the Krishna Paksha of the month of Pausha

According to the Hindu calendar, there are 12 Sankranti in a year and Makar Sankranti has the most importance. It is celebrated during the Krishna Paksha of Pausha month.

According to the beliefs of astrology, on the day of Makar Sankranti, Sun God enters Capricorn and regains momentum. Therefore, you are advised to worship Lord Surya on this day by offering Arghya and chanting his mantras.

Although this festival is celebrated every year on 14 January, but this time it will be celebrated a day later i.e. on 15 January. This is a result of the direction of the planets as the Sun will leave Sagittarius and enter Capricorn at 2 o’clock. On January 15 at 54 am. Therefore, as per the sunrise date, we will celebrate Makar Sankranti on 15th January this year.
