Festival Video: Jaipur Teej Festival 2012
Jaipur Teej festival is well known across the world and is an icon of Jaipur tourism. Teej festival is celebrated in Jaipur to welcome monsoon during Shraavan month (July-August) as per Hindu Calendar. On Teej festival, millions of devotees from whole Rajasthan participate in the auspicious rally of Teej Mata (Goddess Parvati). Teej Mata (Goddess Teej) is an incarnation of Goddess Parvati. This two days long festival is celebrated on the 3rd and 4th day of Shukla Paksha (bright fortnight) of Shravan Month. Bright fortnight symbolizes "Growth" hence the women of Rajasthan keep fast for the long life of their husbands while the men of Rajasthan offer their prayers to Teej Mata for good rain and crop. Hindu mythological significance of this festival is that after a long separation, Goddess Parvati reunited with her husband Lord Shiva. She gave a boon to this day that whoever do worship of Goddess Parvati on this day, Goddess Parvati will fulfill his/her wishes.
