Teej is one of the most celebrated festivals and the celebrations, observed by married women who worship Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, take place during the monsoon season. Teej, also known as Boorhi Teej, is celebrated on the third day of the dark fortnight of Bhadrapada. Kajari Teej is called Badi Teej and Haryali Teej is known as Chhoti Teej.

The term “Kajari” has its origin in folk tradition that describes how a woman feels the pain of a brief separation from her husband. The festival is also associated with monsoon. Women visit their parental home to perform the rituals and pray to the moon. They also worship the neem tree. This festival comes three days after Raksha Bandhan and five days before Krishna Janmashtami.

Unmarried women can also observe the Teej fast for a life partner of their choice. The significance of praying to Shiva and Parvati lays in the fact that they represent a happily married couple. On the day of the festival, women put on mehendi on their palms and wear new clothes.

Hartalika Teej Vrat is observed during Shukla Paksha Tritiya of Bhadrapada month. Haritalika Teej comes one month after Hariyali Teej and, most of the time, celebrates one day before Ganesh Chaturthi. On this day, women observe 'Nirjala Vrat' (fast without food and water). They worship Goddess Parvati for the long and conjugal life of their husbands.

Teej festivity is celebrated in the northern states of India -- especially in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan.
