Nasrignaj is a block situated in Rohtas District of Bihar, India.

Nasirganj takes its name from a Sufi name Mir Nasir Dehlavi, who came to the village in late 19th century. His mausoleum is situated at the center of Nasriganj. The village is situated on the banks of river "Sone".

There is a market place named Izhar Market in downtown Nasrignaj. This is a big market considering population of the village having more than 30 shops. This market is a big attraction for people coming from nearby villages. Apart from this market, there some more attractions for people nearby. There is a big vegetable and food grain market and produces like potatoes, rice and gur are exported from this market. Beside this there is mini hydro power station on canal. There is one post office, telephone exchange and Nasriganj police station under Dy.S.P.

There are more markets in Nasriganj such as Aslaam Market and Dhaan Mandi

The main occupation of people of Nasriganj is farming . This whole area has some of the most fertile land and a village known as Mahadeva has considered as the most fertile land named after Ram Varn Tiwary and is very well irrigated through a canal network. So as well connected via road one side with Dehri-on-sone and other side with Bikramganj. The Son River is one of the widest rivers of the country and remains undried all year. So as the name suggests River Son = sona means gold, it makes the people rich in terms of food and even enriching them in all aspects of life and is like a lifeline for the area. Son River is also one of the cleanest rivers till date in the entire world as there are no industries & major cities upstream of this river, so in one way this river also helps in terms of keeping a check on the Ganges pollution level, as this river merges with the Ganges near Patna for its final journey to the Bay of Bengal.

At present time a famous company is working it is called Baloo Ghat company. It is a mining company of "silicate" which is found in Sone River. It currently (2016) is a main source of income of this block. It is a contract-based company but it has changed the economic culture of this area.

"Ara Line" canal is lifeline of this block. The source of this canal is Sone River and passed through three districts of this area. 180 km long this canal is a basic source of irrigation water.

A very special sweet of Nasriganj is "Khoorma" which was accidentally prepared by Ramrati Devi and "laktho" made from cottage cheese.

There is a "Gandhi Maidan" nearby Sone river. Children go there to play cricket and all other sports.

It is also said that the God Rama had passed from this place in his journey to Buxar. And hence this place bears the name Charanpuri.
