In Gujarat, the festival of Makar Sankranti is known as Uttarayan. In Gujarat it is basically celebrated as a Kite Flying Festival with great enthusiasm.
Basically, Uttarayana, is the six-month period between Winter solstice and Summer solstice, when the sun apparently travels towards the north on the celestial sphere.
But it is common to erroneously refer it to as the period between the Makar Sankranti (January 15) and Karka Sankranti. The name Uttarayana comes from joining two different Sanskrit words “Uttara” (North) and “ayana” (movement towards).
