Built in 1814, in the memory of Parshuram mother, Renuka Temple stands as a prominent landmark. Every year in November, a fair is organized at the Renuka Temple, where it is believed that Parshuram himself attends to meet his mother. Encircled with lush green mountains and dense pine forest, Sirmaur draws multitude of tourists from far and wide. Locals take pride in preserving their traditions and religious customs, whose glimpse is evident in the Bishu festival held in the month of Baisakh.

During the fair, visitors witness locals performing folk dance “Nati’” in traditional attire and participating in a traditional archery competition known as “Thoda”.
