Hartalika Teej is celebrated on the Tritiya or 3rd day of the Skukla Paksha. This festival is mainly celebrated by married women in honour of Goddess Parvati. The word Hartalika is made by joining the words ‘harat’ meaning abduction and ‘Aalika’ means one who is a good female friend. According to the Hindu mythology, it was on this day incarnation of Goddess Parvati was abducted by her friends to stop her marriage to Lord Vishnu, and ultimately she was married to Lord Shiva. Hartalika Teej is celebrated by women seeking long life and prosperity of their husband. Unmarried women also perform this Puja to seek a husband just like Lord Shiva. On this day, makeshift statues of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati are made with the sand and worshiped for marital bliss and progeny.
