Jammu (Jammu & Kashmir), Nov 08 (ANI): Devotees in large numbers are thronging the shrine of 16th century Dogra hero, Baba Jitto, and his daughter Bua Kauri to seek blessings and witness the nine-day-long annual fair in Jammu. The annual fair began on Saturday and will continue till November 12. Every year, millions of devotees pay obeisance at the shrine and take holy dip in ‘Babe- da- Talab’ believed to have miraculous healing powers. A devotee said the holy pond has healing properties and could relieve people of their woes, if they take a dip with unselfish intentions. The annual festival is a tribute to the courage and humility of farmers and salutes the life sacrifice of saint Jitto after he was cheated by landlords.
