Jhiri Mela

Jhiri Mela - October

Jhiri Mela, Jhiri Mela fairs festivals, Jhiri Mela travel, Jhiri Mela of Jammu Kashmir, Fair and Festival of Jammu KashmirThe Jhiri mela is held annually in the memory of a poor farmer who according to popular belief committed suicide to protest against the unfair demands of his landlord.

Baba Jitu was a simple, God loving and honest farmer who preferred to kill himself rather than submit to the unjust demands of the local landlord to part with his crop. He killed himself in the village of Jhiri, 14 kms. From Jammu. A legend has grown around the Baba and his followers congregate at Jhiri on the appointed day from every corner of North India; they revere him for his compassion, courage and honesty and hold an annual fair in his name.
