This year, Hariyali Teej will be observed on July 23, and the tithi will begin at 7:22 pm on July 22 and end at 5:03 pm the next day. This day is marked to remember the reunion of Lord Shiva and Devi Parvati, a day when he accepted her as his wife. Parvati is said to have observed a fast for many years to win over Shiva. It also came to be known as Hariyali Teej (Green Teej) because the Shravan month falls during the monsoon when the rain turns the surroundings green.
On this day, women dress up like a bride with the primary color being green. They apply Mehendi on their palms, wear green-colored bangles, sing traditional songs, and perform dances. Since Teej festivals are about celebrating the institution of marriage, unmarried girls pray for a husband of their choice, while married women pray for the well-being and long life of their husbands.
