Kiradu is an ancient place located on the foot of a hill near Hathma Village in Barmer District, Rajasthan. An inscription dating back to 1161 states that the place was called Kiratkoop and was the erstwhile capital of Punwars.

Kiradu is of great archaeological interest owing to the ruins of five ancient temples. One temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and the rest are dedicated to Lord Shiva. The biggest of these temples is the Someshwar Temple.

Kiradu is around 35 km west of Barmer.
