As famous Rajasthan is for it's for its amazing tourist attractions and vibrant culture, the scorching weather of Rajasthan in the summers sure deters many from traveling to Rajasthan in the sweltering heat of the summers. The local people also pray for deliverance from this heat and await the onset of monsoons eagerly. And when finally it rains down on Rajasthan, the people celebrate the arrival of monsoon with the grand Teej Festival.
The Teej Festival is dedicated to Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva who are considered to be the ideal couple by them. Young girls and women dress up in all their finery and pray for the well being of their would be spouses and husbands. Swings, which are associated with monsoon in India, play an important part during the Teej festival. You will see decorated swings everywhere in Rajasthan during Teej that adds more to its variety and color. Even though the whole of Rajasthan celebrates Teej, it is actually Jaipur where all the action is concentrated. A colorful procession winds its way through Jaipur for two consecutive days and is watched by thousands who line the streets.
When the whole of Rajasthan celebrates, can music and merriment be far behind? Travel to Rajasthan where colorfully dressed artists regale the onlookers with their lively performances and antics. The rains and the wet earth seem to infuse new energy into these merry folks who continue to entertain their audience without pause. In fact, words are not enough to define the beauty of the Teej Festival, which is something you must be a part of if you are in Rajasthan at that point of time that would be 24th July- 25th July 2009.
