This year Hartalika Teej falls on August 11, 2021. The day is marked on Shukla Paksha Tritiya of the Hindu month of Bhadrapud, which is the third day of the bright half of the North Indian lunar month. It is believed by the Hindu devotees that Teej signifies the day Lord Shiva accepted Goddess Parvati as his wife, after her 108 re-births.

Married women observe fasts for the wellness of their husband, children, and their own self to celebrate this day. Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva are worshipped by these women, seeking marital bliss and harmony in their homes.
