Daman and Diu

Daman and Diu Tour and TravelsDaman and Diu is the second smallest union territory of India liberated from Portuguese rule in 1961. Daman and Diu are actually two parts that were part of Goa until 1987. Geographically Daman and Diu are the seaside beauties. Daman in the Gulf of Cambay is situated near Surat while Diu is near Junagadh is joined by a creek.

Daman

Daman is situated on the coast of Gujarat. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the Somnath Mahadev Temple is an important place of worship in Daman. As per the legend the Shivalinga emerged here on the request of a true devotee of Shiva. The local devotees constructed a small temple at the same site. Now Ganga Ji Fair is organized here every year, and the temple was given new look in 1973.
Daman has its own range of beautiful places like Devka Beach, Jampore Beach, Lake in Kachigam, Nani Danan jetty garden and Hilsa fish Aquarium.

Diu

Diu is a very popular and important tourist resort. Diu has an imposing structure in its Fort with a number of old cannons and shells. The fort commands a magnificent view of the sea and its surrounding areas. A little distance from the Diu Fort is Panikotha fortress approachable by boat. It is mesmerizing to watch when lit up in the evening. Dom Joao de Castro reconstructed the fortress of Diu after the siege of 1545.

There are other forts also. Gogola Fort which was destroyed in 1896; the Passo Seco Fort predates the Portuguese conquest; Barra Fort now converted into a lighthouse; the Nagoa Fort built in 1773; Tad Fort; Old Fort; and a palace.

Daman and Diu TourismDiu witnessed the rule of Chowda Rajputs (8th-13th century), Waghalas, Muslims (Bahadur Shah and Emperor Humayun) and the Portuguese who ruled almost 450 years, starting with Albuquerque.

The Shivlingas washed by sea is a unique sight at Gangeshwar Temple at Jallandhar beach. The other two revered sites are St. Paulís Church and St. Francis Church. The festivals celebrated here are Gangaji Fair, Holi, Dussehra, Diwali, Christmas, carnival, and Eid.
