History of Teej

It is believed that the name, Teej was derived from a small red insect called ‘Teej’ that emerges from the earth in the monsoon season.

According to mythology, Goddess Parvati carried out fast for 108 years to prove her love and devotion for Lord Shiva. On this day, Goddess Parvati came to Lord Shiva’s abode, marking their union as husband and wife.

Some scriptures even say that Goddess was born 107 times before she was reborn as Parvati, and in her 108th birth, she was granted the boon to be the wife of Lord Shiva.
