Teej festival

28th August 2014


This is a Hindu celebration that is a married woman’s day for her man. Women are clad in beautiful red saris with shining pots (glass beads). Singing and dancing is the sight almost everywhere in Nepal. On this day women observe a fast and pray to Lord Shiva for a long, healthy and prosperous life for their husbands and their families. The unmarried women also observe this festival with unabated zeal with the hope that they will get to marry good husbands.
