Bijnor, or more correctly Bijnaur, occupies the north-west corner of the Moradabad Division (historically, Rohilkhand or Bareilly region), and is a roughly triangular stretch of country with its apex to the north.

The western boundary is formed by the deep stream of the river Ganges, beyond which lie the four districts of Dehradun (Uttrakhand), Saharanpur, Muzaffarnagar (Saharanpur division) and Meerut of Meerut division.

Geography of Bijnor

To the north and north-east in the hill country of Garhwal, the dividing line being the submountain road, which runs from Hardwar along the foot of the Himalayas to Ramanagar, Haldwani and Tanakpur.

This road, popularly known as the Kandi Sadak, belongs throughout its length to Garhwal, the transfer having taken place a few years since.

On the east the Phika river for the greater part of its course constitutes the boundary, separating this district from Naini Tal and Moradabad, as far as its junction with the Ramganga; and to the south lie the Thakurdwara, Amroha, and Hasanpur tehsil of Moradabad division, the boundary being conventional and undetermined by natural features.
