Kanpur, located on the banks of the perennial Ganga, is a significant industrial hub in North India with historical, religious and commercial significance. Kanpur was formerly known as 'Kanpur,' and is said to have been built by monarch Hindu Singh of the old kingdom of Sachendi. Jajmau, on the eastern edges of modern-day Kanpur, is historically recognised as one of Kanpur's most archaic townships.

Uttar Pradesh's largest city and India's ninth largest, Kanpur is a major metropolis. Kanpur has profited from its abundant agricultural hinterland in the Upper Ganga Valley and the Bundelkhand plateau, as well as established transportation linkages and the industrial demand stimulant of World War II. Despite the fact that there is a small amount of irrigated land in this city, the density is high, which is related to the large concentration of industry.
