Mau ( , maū), formerly Mau Nath Bhanjan (Hindi: मऊनाथ भंजन, Urdu: ), nearly 90 km from Varanasi is the powerhouse of textile weavers in Eastern UP, India. It is a small industrial town on the banks of Ghaghra (Saryu). The Tamasa river flows through the city. The credit of converting this city to a district goes to the (late) Kalpnath Rai (former MP for Ghosi).

In 1960s it was the biggest supplier of a plant called plash.
