Teej festival signifies the beginning of the Sawan (the months of monsoon). The festival takes place for two days in the Hindu month of Shravan (July-August). The Teej Festival of Jaipur is celebrated to honor the union of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. In this festival, devotees prayer to Goddess Parvati and seek her blessings for marital bliss and happiness.

The Teej Festival of Jaipur is marked by a huge procession taken out in the city. In the convoy, is placed an idol of Teej (covered by a canopy), along with the idol of Gangaur (representing Goddess Parvati), which is kept in the open. The Teej idol is beautifully ornamented and adorned with bright clothes. The convoy, which had the City Palace as its starting point, goes on for two successive days.

Teej is celebrated mainly by the women folk of Rajasthan. Married women who idolize Parvati for her devotion to her husband Shiva celebrate Teej. The festivity revolves around singing and dancing in praise of Parvati. The rituals allow the women to pamper and enjoy themselves, to feast, to dress in the best of cloths, finery and jewellery, in fact to look the stunning best.


Regarded as the festival of swings and rains, the Rajasthan Sawan Teej Festival is also a celebration of the freedom from the scorching heat. The rains falling on the dry and arid land, along with the delightful scent of the wet soil releases us from the intolerable heat of the summers. In the Teej Festival of Jaipur, Rajasthan, young girls and women wear bright and colorful clothing. They suspend swings, adorned with colorful flowers, from the branches of trees. To welcome the monsoon season, they also sing traditional songs and celebrate its onset.
