About Agar Jitoo

Agar Jitoo is the ancient shrine of Baba Jitoo. Located at a distance of about eight kilometers from Katra, on the main Reasi-Katra road. The location of the shrine is a very calm and quite place. Visitors feel a total peace of mind upon entering this area. The locals are very welcoming and tell you about the beautiful story attached to this place. It is said that Baba Agar Jitoo was a revolutionary peasant. He fought against the feudal order existing in olden times. Also, he was an ardent devotee of Mata Vaishno Devi and used to visit her temple daily. Pleased by his devotion one day, Goddess Vaishno granted him a boom in the form of a flower that turned into a small girl (incarnation of Mata) who lived with him as his daughter. Some statues at the temple depict life of the sage and the divinity as his daughter. Water source in front of the temple is believed to have been created by Baba Agar to cut down on local water crisis of his native village. This water spring is considered a miraculous one. In the month of June, a three-day fair is also held here as a tribute to Baba Agar Jitto.

Historical Context: This Shrine is dedicated to baba Jitoo.
