The Hindu festival Hariyali Teej is celebrated in the month of Shravan and especially in the parts of Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Jharkhand and Rajasthan. The Hariyali Teej is also known as choti teej. On this day married women observe fast for the long life of their husbands and family. The Hariyali Teej this year is celebrated on July 23.

Mahurat: This year pooja timing starts from 7:22 PM from July 22 and ends on 5:03 PM on July 23.
