Teej festival is held every year during the Hindu month of Shravan and marks the advent of the monsoon. The onset of monsoon is a time to celebrate as the rain brings water to the parent land.
The Teej Festival is dedicated to Goddess Parvati and commemorates the day when she was united with Lord Shiva. Young girls, newly wed women and elderly women can be seen attired in traditional costumes or in special multicolored striped pattern Laharia Sari and ornaments. They can be seen applying henna to decorate their hands and singing songs of love and enjoying flower bedecked swings, which are hung on trees.
Start your Teej Taiyyari as the auspicious festival is this year on 13th -14th August, 2018 in Jaipur.
