Daman is a famous city in the union territory of Daman and Diu India. It is very beautiful city divided by the Daman Ganga River into two parts, namely Nani-daman (Nani meaning “small”) and Moti-daman (Moti meaning “big”). Though Nani-daman is the larger of the two towns. It is the downtown area that holds most of the important entities like the major hospitals, supermarkets and major residential areas. While Moti-daman is mainly the old city inhabited.
It is also famous for its beach, Portuguese colonial architecture, churches, and for the scenic beauty in the twin towns of Nani-Daman and Moti-Daman, which lie opposite each other across the Daman Ganga.
This city has a rich history. The Portuguese Diogo de Melo arrived at the spot by chance in 1523, when heading towards Ormuz but caught in a violent storm and having his boat blown towards the coast of Daman. Soon after it was settled as a Portuguese colony and remained so for over 400 years. A larger fort was built in Moti daman in the 16th century to guard against the Mughals who ruled the area until the Portuguese arrived. It still stands today, most of it preserved in its original form. Today the majority of the municipal government offices are situated inside this fort.
Daman was incorporated into the Republic of India in December 1961 after a battle between the Portuguese and the Indians. There are many small villages around Daman, such as Bhenslore, Kunta, Bhimpor, Kadaiya, Devka Mangelad, Varkund and Khariwad. Daman district is one of the two districts of the union territory of Daman and Diu on the western coast, surrounded by Valsad of Gujarat state on the north, east and south and the Arabian Sea to the west.
