Makar Sankranti in India


In Bengal, it is customary to donate sesame seeds after bathing on this festival. A huge fair is held here every year in Gangasagar. On the day of Makar Sankranti, Ganga followed the Bhagiratha and passed through Kapil Muni's ashram and joined the ocean.

It is also believed that on this day Yashoda fasted to attain Sri Krishna. On this day lakhs of people gather in Gangasagar for bathing and charity. People take trouble and travel to the Ganges Sagar.

There is a huge crowd of people here on Makar Sankranti only one day in a year. That's why it is said - "Saare Tirath repeatedly, Ganga Sagar once."

Stay tuned
