Today I would like to share with you about Jaipur's most beautiful festival. Yes, I am talking about Teej. When I was studying and working simultaneously with a daily newspaper in Jaipur, I got the opportunity to participate in this colourfull festival. I was covering this festival for my readers. I remember how I saw a number of decorated elephants, horses and camels that were a part of this beautiful festival.
Teej is one of the most widely celebrated festivals of the Pink city. Swings, traditional songs and dancing are the unique features of Teej celebrations in Jaipur. Women perform traditional folk dance dressed in green colored clothes and sing beautiful Teej songs while enjoying their sway on swings bedecked with flowers.
Teej is celebrated with immense fanfare in the capital city of Rajasthan, jaipur. On this day, women and young girls wear their best clothes and adorn themselves with fine jewelry. They gather at a nearby temple or a common place and offers prayers to Goddess Parvati for well-being of their husband.
On the occasion of Teej, markets in Jaipur are stocked with trendiest women accessories and clothes. Most of the fabric clothes display laheria (tie and dye) prints. Sweet shops keep different Teej sweets but ghewar is the main sweet of the season. At some shops malpuas and fenis are also prepared in great quantities.
