Unlike the Teej Festival celebrated throughout the state of Rajasthan, Kajli Teej Festival is celebrated in the city of Bundi. This festival is organized in the Hindu month of Bhadra (July-August).
Rajasthan Kajli Teej Festival starts on the third day of the month of Bhadra and lasts for two days. The festival is held to commemorate Goddess Teej. A procession of the goddess in a decorated palanquin marks the beginning of the Kajli Teej Festival of Bundi, Rajasthan. The procession starts from the beautiful Naval Sagar, passes through the main bazaars and comes to an end at the Azad Park.
Kajli Teej Festival is the time for the married couples to restore their ties of commitment and devotion. Characterizing this renewal of marital bonds are special sweetmeats and swing rides. The attractions of the festival include amazing performances by Hadoti artists and cultural programs organized in the evenings.
People from surrounding areas also come to this festival and participate in the programs. Although the main Kajli Teej Festival takes place for two days only, but the festivities continue till the festival of Janmashtami (birth anniversary of Lord Krishna).
