Rohanpur Octagonal Tomb is located in the village of Naoda, which is far from about three kilometres to the northeast of the Rohanpur Railway station, in the Nawabganj district.[2] In this Rohanpur-Nauda area this building is the only extant monument. The adjoining villages of Pirpur, Bhagalpur, Prasadpur and Qasba, stayed close to the junction of the Mahananda and the Punarbhava have contained evidence of archaeological remains with a good number of mounds and ponds along with numerous brick-bats and potsherds.[3][2]
