Dera Baba Rudru is a major tourist destination located at the village of Nari in the district of Una. Situated at a distance of 10 km from Una, this shrine is devoted to Baba Rudranand, who is regarded as an incarnation of the Hindu Lord Shiva. It is believed that the saint not only built by a shrine here but also established an 'akhand dhoona', holy ashes, in 1850. This holy ash is said to have been burning since the time of its foundation. According to popular belief, the akhand dhoona acts as an antidote to snake bites. In 1970, Mahant Sugrivanand, the present guru, founded Baba Rudru Bal Gopal Temple in Delhi.

Festivals and fairs like Panch Bhisham Mela, Nirjala Ekadashi Fair, Baba Rudru’s Jayanti, and Guru Poornima are celebrated with gaiety and enthusiasm here. Besides, a big fair, known as Kushokpatini Amavasya is celebrated every year on the Hindu festival of Sankranti.
