Teej Festival concludes with beautiful colors

Teej Procession

Along with enjoying the monsoon showers and relishing Teej’s sweet delicacies such as fini and ghewar, those who thronged the Teej festival organized by the Department of Tourism also posed for pictures and clicked each other. The firang tourists, of course, were delighted. 

Showcasing the charm and culture of Rajasthan, the two-day monsoon fest kicked off with the traditional Teej procession led by decked up elephants, musical bands, chariots and folk performers in the walled city.

The procession of the Teej Goddess began from the Tripoliya Gate and was the major attraction as the tourists got to see a little bit more of the traditional festival. Between trying to capture each and every moment of the procession on their cameras, the tourists also sampled the sweets and looked about at the items on sale at the Crafts Mela at JKK’s Shilpgram. This mela was done on the lines of a village fair, and had handicrafts shops with colourful ware, folk performances, elegantly decorated swings and, of course, the food court.

Bringing diverse music on the same platform, this mela also showcased the refined classical music of India with artistes like sufi singer Sonam Kalra, Kuchipudi dancer Shalu Jindal, and singer Vidya Shah performing at the Jawahar Kala Kendra.
