Ramsagar is situated in the village Tejpur which is about 8 kilometers south of the Dinajpur town. Barind tract formed on the old alluvium of Pleistocene period by new alluvial deposit of Tista silt and the Gangetic alluvium is rich in archaeological specimen.  In this tract Ramsagar is a splendid excavation of Raja Ramnath. Though not a sea- for its overwhelming dimension, tranquility and scenic beauty it recalls that vision. Soon after partition in 1947 AD it was visualized in all sections of people as a place to watch and enjoy. Visitation was intensified. Surrounding areas still remained as depiction of desert. Conversion it into green image-along with water body gave rise to panoramic view. As a step ahead towards nature and solitude the area was declared as Rasagar National Park on April 30, 2001.
