Jagdishpur is a city and a municipality in Amethi district in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

The popular language spoken here is Hindi & Urdu. Jagdishpur is situated at about 62 km from the city of Amethi district on the national highway No.56 and 83.4 km from Lucknow towards east. Nihalgarh, the nearest railway station on Lucknow-Varanasi route, is about 6 km from the main industrial area towards Sultanpur and has been a major market place for the local people or the people living in villages around it from a very long time.

The place has been a major market itself and also played a role as a nodal centre for reaching other important markets. Well connected by roads with Lucknow, Raebareli, Sultanpur,Ranigunj and Faizabad cities, Nihalgarh (about 27 km from Tehsil Musafirkhana) always played a significant role in the economic affairs of the natives of the region.

During the period when prominent political personalities opted for Amethi as their parliamentary constituency (in 1980s), Jagdishpur was selected to be a most suitable place in the district for setting up heavy and medium scale industries for generating employment for locals and their multipronged development
