तीज is a fasting festival for married Hindu women.

Dedicated to the Goddess Parvati, commemorating her union with Lord Shiva, the festival is celebrated for marital bliss, well-being of spouse and children and purification of own body and soul.

The festival is a three-day-long celebration that combines sumptuous feasts as well as rigid fasting. A day before this festival is celebrated as Sinjara wherein girls/ladies put on mehandi on their hands.
