Every year Delhi Tourism organizes an opulent Teej Utsav to celebrate ‘the monsoon festival of Teej’. Teej is a festival dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati seeking blessings for marital bliss. Ladies dress up to nines on this day and swing with their friends singing the monsoon tunes. This year too Dilli Haat Janakpuri in association with Rajasthan Tourism will hold a grand Teej Utsav from 5-7 August 2016.
Dilli Haat’s Teej Utsav is certainly a not-to-be-missed event for it transcends you into the colorful world of arts and handicrafts. The evening cultural programs will have Rajasthani folk artists as well as people from Sahitya Kala Parishad performing. Teej Utsav will have camel rides and swings – the trademark of this festival.
