Makar Sankranti is known as Uttarayan in Gujarat. Uttarayan is a significant festival in Gujarat which lasts for two days. The first day of Sankranti is known as Uttarayan and the next day of Uttarayan is known as Vasi Uttarayan or stale Uttarayan. The day is considered highly auspicious and is dedicated to Lord Surya.

Flying kite is one of the most popular events during Uttarayan. During Sankranti sky is filled with myriad kites of various sizes and colors in all major cities of Gujarat, including Ahmedabad, Surat and Vadodara.
