Named after Rajput Ana Singh , Anapur is a village in tehsil Soraon of present day Allahabad district. It is one amongst the many villages which has a few notable sites like Shrinverpur  and Ram Chaura .
Until the Haveli was established by Babu Chintaman Singh’s descendant, Babu Deokinandan Singh , an Amil  of the English, Anapur played no significant political role. In the early period of English settlement, many nobles and prominent people established themselves at important revenue and ruling positions by favor of the English.
Later expanded into zamindary, Anapur was extensively developed under the supervision of Rai Bahadur Babu Bhagwati Saran Singh  with schools, hospitals and a model agricultural training center.
As of 2020, Anapur has a bustling bazaar and holds a fair for three days on the occasion of Vijayadashami welcoming admirers into its abode.
