Enjoy the royal procession of Teej in Jaipur
Festivals and fairs in Rajasthan add much needed zing to the lives of local dwellers as well as tourists, and give everyone an opportunity to forget all tensions and make merry. Fairs and festivals in Jaipur epitomize this very idea of living life to the hilt. At Alsisar Haveli- Jaipur we feel proud to introduce our guests to this royal procession of Teej in Jaipur.
Teej, the carnival of swings tributes the arrival of pleasant spring month of Shravan (in the month of August). The torrential rain falls on the scorched land of Rajasthan and the lovely aroma of the wet soil mounts in the air. People hang swings from trees and ladies would dress up in bright colorful clothes. Teej festival is devoted to the deity Parvati to tribute her unification with mighty God Shiva.
Owing to the enjoyable ambiance of the neighboring foliage, women in Rajasthan enjoy carefree swings. Hence, the key reason behind Teej festival is to make a woman of the house happy thus making the whole family to prosper.
Beginning from the Tripolia Gate of the City Palace at 06.00 pm and ending at Chaugan Stadium Jaipur, the traditional royal procession would be led through the Tripolia Bazaar and Chhoti Chaupar today and tomorrow (July 30 and 31, 2014). Antique gilt palanquins, bullock carts pulling cannons, chariots, bedecked elephants, horses, camels, brass bands, and dances all form a part of this grand procession. The Palanquin of Goddess Paravati is carried by eight men dressed in red color. This kilometre long parade travels through the embedded lanes of the old city. Spectators and visitors are advised to reach the venue before time to avoid rush.
People come out in their traditional best to witness, participate and enjoy!!
