Legends behind Kajari Teej

According to legends and folklore, Kajali was a dense forest in Central India which was under the rule of King Dadurai. The subjects of his kingdom used to chant songs known by the same name (Kajali) in praise of the magnificent place. The death of King Dadurai was a turning event. Following his death, Queen Nagamati, the king’s wife, performed Sati. People of Kajali were saddened by their separation. They began singing songs by improvising Raga Kajari which became popular as the songs of separation. This Teej is associated with devotion of a woman toward her husband. Another Legend has it that Goddess Parvati pined for marital and divine association with Lord Shiva. She performed a strict fast for 108 years. Seeing her dedication, Shiva was pleased to accept divine union with Her. This divine union between Lord Shiva and Parvati Devi occurred during Krishna Paksha of Bhadrapada month. This day, later, came to be known as Kajari Teej. It is said to be very auspicious to worship Goddess Parvati on this day.
