Rajasthan, being a desert state, marks the outbreak of monsoon with hearty celebrations. One such important festival is Teej, which falls on the third day of the bright fortnight of the month of Shrawan (July-August). A three-day long festival that is a part of the grand Indian tradition of Northern and Western India. Celebrated with much gusto, it is observed primarily by Hindu women. The festival itself has a dual, overlapping significance that revolves around the reunion of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva as well as the onset of the monsoon season in India. The remarkable thing about this festival is that it is celebrated in similar yet distinct ways in different states. The grandeur of the festival is reflected in the finery adorned by women on this day.

This festival in Jaipur is a spectacular one. The procession, along with the idol of the goddess in a silver palanquin, will be a special attraction and the finely decorated elephants, horses, bullock carts will grab the attention of the visitors.  Both men and women take part in the procession playing musical instruments and dancing to the traditional beats wearing vivid attires. Another aspect of the background of this festival is the time at which it is celebrated. Since ‘Teej’ literally means ‘third day’, the third day of the Saavan month (the month of monsoon) is celebrated as Teej. This marks the arrival of the monsoon season and the respite from the summer heat, which is especially significant for arid states as well as those that largely invested in agriculture.

The traditional Teej procession with all its regal pomp and pageantry, will start on the 05 August, at 6 pm from the City Palace, winding its way through Tripolia Bazar and Chhoti Chaupar, Gangauri Bazaar to wind up at the Chaugan Stadium. The procession will also take place next day at the same time. The event will be led by an elephant which will carry the symbol. It will be followed by a mélange of cultural performances likes Kachhi Ghodi, Gair, Kalibaliya and chakri dances. The procession will include: a cannon carriage, bullock carts, horse baggi, decorated rath, horses and camels. A number of bands will also accompany the procession. The palanquin of the Goddess will be almost at the end followed by a chobdar.

Sitting arrangements for tourists have been made to witness the procession at the terrace of the Hind Hotel opposite Tripoliya gate.
