So, let's talk about the celebration time period of the Teej festival. Basically, the Teej festival is occurring during the arrival of monsoon season of severe heat, and this year the Teej festival is in the month of August 21 Friday.

Teej is mainly celebrated by women all over Nepal among three days. The festival is a three-day festival that combines delicious foods.

The first day of this festival is known as the Dar Khane Din, the women sit for a long 24-hour fast, during which most do not eat or drink water. Let me tell you the interesting thing about these festivals women of all ages, young and old, dancing for hours in the heat, rain, without running water or food all day. Huge respect to all of Nepali women. They fast all the day not for them only for their husband's long life.

It is interesting to see in the temple of Pashupatinath, where thousands of women stare at the red and green crowds in the temple area. Viewers can take pictures of these women dancing suddenly, where sometimes foreigners, especially female guests, are asked to participate in the event.

The significance of such a ceremony is that women ask for special blessings from Lord Shiva, find a good husband in life, and pray for his long life and success.

On the last day of the three-day festival, the Women satisfy the seven saints by giving them food, money and various offerings, and bathing in the Red mud and brushing their teeth with Datiwan (tree branches) in the hope that this purifies their bodies and souls.
