Teej celebrations in and around Pashupati

  • September 2, 2019

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.
