Teej festival is the biggest festival of Nepalese women, which is celebrated all over Nepal. The festival generally falls in August or early in September. Teej is mainly celebrated for 3 days, which are a Feast day, Fasting Day and Rishi Panchami. Red saris, bangles, bracelets and adornments are worn for feasts, fasting, dancing, laughing and blessings.

Hartalika Teej in Nepal is the celebration of the goddess Paravati’s marriage to Shiva. The festival celebrates the well-being of a spouse, the children along with the purification of the body and soul. It also celebrates the union of the marriage for this life and many more to come.

On the final day of this three day festival, women satisfy seven saints offering them food, money and various offerings, and also bathing with Red mud and brushing their teeth with Datiwan (branches of a bush tree) hoping this purifies their body and soul.
