Daman & Diu

Daman & Diu

Daman and Diu, a union territory in west India, consists of two separate areas divided by the Arabian Sea. The Daman Ganga River flows through the coastal town of Daman. Diu is a small island and mainland village. The Fort of Moti Daman, Diu Fort, and 16th-century churches reflect the territory’s past as a Portuguese colony. In the town of Moti Daman, the Basilica of Bom Jesus Church is known for its gilt altarpiece. Baroque-style St. Paul’s Church in Diu and the Fort of St. Jerome in Daman are among other significant colonial sights in the union territory. The seafront GangeshwarMahadev Temple in Diu attracts Hindu devotees of Lord Shiva. On a hilltop overlooking the Arabian Sea, the Jallandhar Shrine houses the stone-carved face of a demon defeated by the Hindu god Lord Krishna. Farther along Diu’s coast, the quirky Shell Museum displays around 3,000 seashells. Steps from the museum, sandy Nagoa Beach is lined with branching Hoka palm trees. In Daman, Jampore Beach is another palm-lined stretch of sand.
