Kashipur is a city and a municipal board in Udham Singh Nagar district in the Indian state of Uttarakhand.
Kashipur was known as Govishan or Govisana, during the time of Harsha (606–647 AD), when Xuanzang (631–641 AD) visited this region. The ruins of the large settlement of those days are still to be seen near the city. Kashipur was named after Kashinath Adhikari, the founder of the township and Governor of the pargana, one of the officers of the Chand Kings of Kumaon in the 16-17 century.
Poet Gumani Pant has written a poem on this town. Girital and Drona Sagar are well known spots and are associated with the story of the Pandavas. The Chaiti Mela is the best known fair of Kashipur. Today Kashipur is an important industrial township. In autumn, after monsoon, one can see the snowclad peaks of Trishul and its surroundings.
