On Hariyali Teej, which is dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, married women observe fast and perform puja to seek marital blessing and prosperity. Generally, women wear red or green clothes, bangles, apply heena, and visit their parents’ house. While it is mainly for married women, brides-to-be too can fast on this day.
In return, the woman’s parents give her a gift bucket called ‘sindhara’. The bucket contains homemade sweets, henna, bangles, etc. And it is because of this custom that Hariyali Teej is also called Sindhara Teej.
Hariyali Teej is also known as Chhoti Teej and Shravana Teej.
