Teej 2006 in Kathmandu

Married Hindu women wearing red bridal dresses celebrate the Teej festival (aka Karva Chauth in the south of India).
They honor a Shiva linga to pray for a long life and the well-being of their husbands. Unmarried women observe the festival by praying for a good husband.
Women sing and dance in large groups in the streets coloured with thousands of bright red sarees.
