Jaipur Teej Savari

Teej Festival is well known in the entire world as it only celebrated in Jaipur. Married Women pray to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati to live a happy married life with their husbands. Besides this, Teej is also known for beautiful coloured dressed, jewellery, happiness and enthusiasm, regardless the social differences.

The Teej idol of Goddess Parvati is taken in the market from the city palace so the general public can take a view of the royal goddess.

Etymologically, the festival ‘Teej’ gets its name from a small red insect called ‘Teej’ that made its appearance during the monsoon.

During the Festival women apply ‘mehendi’ (floral patterns made with henna paste) on their hands and feet, and wear beautiful sarees with matching bangles and ornaments on this day. Usually, green is the more favoured colour especially during ‘Hariyali Teej’. Those observing Teej get cosmetic items and jewellery for ‘Shringara’ by their parents. Women offer decorated coconuts to their relatives. They visit their maternal home and seek the blessings of the elderly and enjoy a get-together with family members.
