Daman, an erstwhile Portuguese enclave for over four decades was liberated in 1961 to form a part of the Indian Union. After Goa became state, the Union Territory of Daman was founded in 1987. A picturesque port town hugged by the Arabian Sea and casuarinas, Daman is a heart warming place of indescribable loveliness, an enchanting destination for all seasons. Muted memories of history lie vaulted in the monuments of Daman, gathering the slime of time. It has beautiful beaches which stretch down its coastal length from Nani Daman, Devka to Kadaiya and From Moti Daman to Jampore. Its lovely gardens, water parks and resorts lining the long shore line fascinate the tourist. Daman in the rains is a magical landscape, dressed in green and the sea breeze adding further to the feeling of exhilaration. There are enough accommodation facilities, restaurants and bars to suit every taste and pocket and the people of Daman are unique in their diversity and hospitality.
