The festival commemorates the divine union of Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati. According to legend, it was on this day that Lord Shiva accepted Maa Parvati as his consort, following her 107 incarnations of penance. It was during her 108th birth that Devi Parvati, also known as Teej Maata, succeeded in winning his heart, reported HT.


Married Hindu women in states such as Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Jharkhand observe Hariyali Teej by partaking in a day-long nirjala vrat (fasting without water) and offering prayers for the longevity and prosperity of their husbands. Among the three prominent Teej festivals observed by Hindus across India—Hariyali Teej, Hartalika Teej, and Kajri Teej—each holds special significance due to its timing in the Sawan and Bhadrapada months. Hariyali Teej, specifically, falls on the third day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Sawan.

On the occasion of Hariyali Teej, Hindu women pray to Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati for the well-being of their spouses. They undertake a day-long fast, adorn their hands with intricate Mehendi designs, don new garments in vibrant green or red shades, engage in shringar (decorative beautification), wear ornate jewelry, and more. During Hariyali Teej women adorn themselves in vibrant green traditional attire. Devotees also construct new swings and sing traditional folk songs that extol the love between Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. This fast can be observed by married women, newlyweds, and unmarried women alike. As part of the rituals, parents send gifts to their daughters' homes, including homemade sweets, ghewar (a regional sweet delicacy), henna, and bangles.
