Ramapur (Hindi: रामापुर) village and post,[1][2][3] or Rama Pur as it is known for postal purposes, is a village-gram panchayat in Pawai Block, Phulpur, Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh, India comprising five villages located on the Sultanpur-Azamgarh road. A visit to the village by Indira Gandhi in 1982 led to Ramapur becoming the first village in the area to be provided indoor electricity. Oril is original village of Ramapur resident's where "Baba Yogi Sarang Dhar" and "Mata Ji" is still worshiped near "Sacred Banyan Tree" after marriage ceremony by people of Ramapur. "Baba Yogi Sarang Dhar (Dhar= to carry/kept/wear and Sarang=Bow/Moon/River(Ganga)) which means the Lord Vishnu/ Krishna /Ram/ Shiva/ Gangadhar-Shiva/ Brahma)" was of Basti district origin (routed from Kashmir) whom the five village (Ramapur, Auradar, Goomkothi, Laggupur, Bag-Vahar) along with the Oril itself donated by the Landlord and "Mata Ji" was from Jaunpur district. In connection with this it has internal relationship with Bishunpur-Jaunpur at present time too as a well known proof of relation with Jaunpur.

The Kashyapa Gotriya Saryupareen Brahmin inhabitants follow Lord Rama and Sita in whose honor this village name was kept Ramapur in ancient days. People of the village are referred to as Triphala[4] Pandey Brahmins. The agricultural productivity of the village is good, but it is hampered by the shortage of agricultural fields resulting in most inhabitants seeking employment elsewhere.
