This is the most important of the three teej festivals for Hindu women. Women celebrate Hartaliki teej to worship the Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva, the symbol for love, devotion and faithfulness, and to wish for a happy married life. Celebrations differ depending on the region. In Rajisthan, there is a beautiful procession which carries an idol of Goddess Parvati, along with music and dancing. In other parts of northern India, women dress up, offer prayers to Shiva and Parvati and also observe a fast refraining from drinking water or eating anything.
