The festival is celebrated with great fervour across Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh and Himachal Pradesh. On this day, married women pray for a long life for their husbands.

It is believed that on the day of Teej, Lord Shiva accepted Goddess Parvati as his wife after she observed a fast and practised austerity for years. Her devotion won the Lord over and he accepted Parvati as his wife in her 108th birth.
