Teej Festival

Teej Festival Teej, also popular as the festival of swings, as it witnesses a number of swings come up, signifies the arrival of the monsoon month of Shravan (August). As the delightfully refreshing water drops of monsoon falls on the dry, parched land, it is the prelude of a new season (monsoon) which marks the end of blistering heat arrival of much pleasant monsoon.

The weather is greeted by colorful celebration of Teej which is dedicated to Goddess Parvati and celebrates her marriage to Lord Shiva. Women worship Goddess Parvati on this day for conjugal bliss and family happiness.

Teej being a predominantly women festival witnesses great enthusiasm on their part. Women and girls on this day put on new cloths and best of jewellery and congregate in the nearby temple and offer prayers to goddess Parvati.

The markets are specially decked up for this occasion while the shops are well stocked with the trendiest accessories and clothes for women. Sweet shops prepare a wide variety of sweets for this occasion; however, the local delicacy 'ghewer' is mostly in demand.

Testimonial

I booked a travel package of Rajasthan for me and my friend. It was a 15 day trip of India's desert state. Most of the cities we visited were well connected with national highways, providing us the easy accessibility of various places. However, some areas were congested making for us difficult to reach on time that may be because of development works on going on places. We loved our heritage hotel stays at Jaipur and Udaipur. We enjoyed the excursions of remote villages and desert. Good execution of trip.
