Baraut is a town (a small city) and a small municipal board in Baghpat district, Uttar Pradesh, India. The town is mostly inhabited by traders and farmers. Baraut is known for Digambar Jain College and Jat College (now called Janta Vedic college), both supposed to be ideal for Science and Art students. At present it is an education hub for the villages around Baraut. Students of every age grops i.e. class 1 to class 12 can be seen coming to Baraut for better education even after travelling for 1–2 hours. Baraut is famous for its quality education imparted to the students in schools, which can be found in almost every street of Baraut. It is famous for the Rim & Dhura and agricultural implements industries. The city is famous for its Jain temples and grand Jain functions organized every year. It is also famous for producing wheels and axles, which are used all over India in motor vehicles. Baraut has an average literacy rate of 77.98%, which is higher than the national average of 74.07%. According to the 2011 census, 84.65% of the males and 70.51% of females are literate. Once upon a time Baraut used to be a Tehsil and Baghpat was one of its village during British ruled India. The British punished Baraut for the part it played in the freedom fight by down grading its status from tehsil to a village and rewarded Baghpat with that title of tehsil. After gaining independence, the Indian government failed to reverse that British decision. Furthermore to add insult to injury the UP government not only continued with the injustice but went one step further and awarded district status to Baghpat not to Baraut which beats Baghpat in every area hand down.

This is a holy place on the name of Gufa Wale Baba ji(aka:kuti wale baba).There is also lord Shiva's Mandir within this place.People, in bulk, visit it on religious festivals like Holi,Diwali etc. Every Sunday devotees from nearby areas participate in religious activities.

It is situated near village Bamnauli on road from Baraut to Budhana via Puchar. Every year on Naag Panchmi, huge croud can be seen here. On deepawali and Holi also, people belonging to nearby places come here from other cities of India to worship Naag Devta
