Hindu women across the globe are observing the festival of Teej today – a festival dedicated to goddess Parvati’s reverence towards Lord Shivaji. Women observe the festival by fasting, offering their prayers to Lord Shivaji and Goddess Parvati, and dancing – lots of dancing.
Every year, millions of devotees arrive at Pashupati to offer their prayers. Here we share a few images from and around the temple.
A special shoutout has to be given towards the management at the temple today –
- lines are moving swiftly,
- security is well-placed,
- there are drinking waters everywhere
- ambulances have been deployed for emergencies
- a sense of order and management is ensured.
