The festival marks the days in the Hindu calendar when winter begins turning to summer, known as Makar Sankranti or Uttarayan.
Since 1989, the city has hosted the Festival as part of the official celebration of Uttarayan.
Master kite makers and flyers from all over the world gather to demonstrate their unique creations and wow the crowds with highly unusual kites.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted Happy Uttarayan. May you all scale new heights of progress in the times to come.
