Sankranti is an Indian fine dining restaurant and banquet hall in Johns Creek, Georgia. The name Sankranti (pronounced sum-kraanthi) translates to “positive change” in Sanskrit and is derived from the traditional three-day Indian harvest festival that shares its name.
India was primarily an agrarian society for several centuries. Apart from the spiritual side, Sankranti is celebrated as a 3-day harvest festival. Crops are harvested, brought home and distributed during this season. Even to this day, the celebration is common throughout India. Family members typically gather at their ancestral home in small villages where elaborate meals are specially prepared with care and love. Friends and neighbors are invited and everyone feels like they are all part of one family. After enjoying lavish and delicious meals, they enjoy playing various sports and games.
Each January during Sankranti, family, friends, and neighbors gather to enjoy abundant meals and spend quality time together, much like Thanksgiving in the United States. The restaurant strives to bring the same ambiance to its guests.
