Kevada Teej, also known as Kevda Trij, is a Hindu ritual observed mainly in Gujarat on the third day of the Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of moon) of Bhadravo in Gujarat. In 2017, the date of Kevda Teej is August 24. This observance is quite similar to the Hartalika Teej Vrat. Married and unmarried women observe a fast on the day and offer Kevada flower to Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva.
Married women observe the Kevda Trij Vrata for a prosperous and happy married life and for the wellbeing of their husbands. Unmarried women observe it for getting a good husband. Flowers of Kevda (Agave) are offered to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati on the day.
Women also offer special prayers in Lord Shiva Temples. Some people opt for a complete fast others observe a partial fast on the day.
Kevada plant is popularly known as fragrant screw pine.
