On this festival Images of Isar and Gauri are made of clay for the festival but in some Rajput families, permanent wooden images are painted afresh every year by reputed painters called matherans on the eve of festival. The main difference of idols of Teej and Gangaur is that the Idol will have a canopy during the Teej Festival while the Gangaur idol would not have a canopy.


Women are decorated their hands and feet by drawing designs with Mehndi (myrtle paste). On the evening of the 7th day after Holi, unmarried girls go around singing songs of ghudlia carrying the pots with a burning lamp inside, on their heads.On their way, they collect small sweets, jaggery, ghee, oil presents of cash etc. this continues for 10 days.
