Daman

Travelling in India
Location: The Union territories of Daman and Diu is located in the Valsad district of Gujarat.

A resort town on a grey, soupy sea is nothing more than a tropical paradise. This small island was established by Portuguese and left the legacy in the form of fine forts and churches. Daman specially crowded in the weekends by exiles from Mumbai and Gujarat. Along with Diu and Goa, Daman was taken in 1961 from the Portuguese, who had seized in 1531. Bahadur Shah, who was the last major Gujarati Sultan ceded to Portuguese in 1559. For some time Daman and Diu were governed from Goa but both now constitute the Union Territory of Daman and Diu, overseen by Delhi.
