Shivpuri is situated in the center of the City of Patna, the Capital of Bihar state. It is spread between A.N.College in the North to B.S.E.B Colony; Patel Nagar in the South, in the East of it lies Mohanpur, Punaichak and in the West of it lies Patel Nagar and Mahesh Nagar.


It is a middle class residential locality in Patna. Shivpuri is very densely populated. The area boasts mostly of one-two –three storey houses. A large number of students reside in this area as it is accessible to Boring and Bailey road easily.


The recent development in Shivpuri is the upcoming apartments in its 15 feet and 20 feet by lanes. All roads in Shivpuri are at most 25 ft broad or less. No doubt therefore that it is congested. The apartments are adding to it.


The residents of Shivpuri have being praying for many years that the plan to convert railway line between Digha and Patna Junction into a broad road is executed soon. This project has not seen the light of the day from decades, though Bihar gave a number of railway ministers to the country. If ever this road is built it will completely change the infrastructural quality of Shivpuri.


The commercial activity in this area is confined to retail shops, few coaching institutes and the evening subzi mandi along the railway line. A few marriage and banquet halls too have come up in larger tracts of private lands. As the area has no other open spaces like park or community halls, the residents of Shivpuri are compelled to organize social functions in these private marriage halls and gardens like MAHARAJAMARRIAGE GARDENS in Shivpuri. The evening in the by lanes of Shivpuri is full of hustle and bustle.
