Dadra & Nagar Haveli
Where mother nature is your host
Dadra & Nagar HaveliSmall is beautiful and so is Dadra & Nagar Haveli. It is love at first sight. The tall awesome trees, the rivers flowing past themm, the green grass mingling with fields of darker green, and the distant hills dotting gently rolling hills.

Whether it is the summer and the heat dries the land or the south-west monsoon whhips the wind-swept trees and rurns the land into an endless stretch of greenn' it wot't matter. You'll love the serene and calm land of Dadra &Nagar Havelli.

This quiet magical land for 72 villages has been ruled by many hands, And the memory of these rulers still linger on, for a century and a half, the fiery portuguesse were the masters of the land. When the land was liberated from their rule, it was taken over by the locals until it merged with the Indian Union. As a land it is not very large, only 491sq. dms. covered with forests and woods a heaven for the simple, colourful tribal folks. But as a place it will stray on the margins of your mind.

Silva, in portuguese means Woods. And this can be seen when you visit Silvassa, the tiny, slleepy capital township. Tall trees reaching for the heavens line roads, off the beaten track, little cottages back in the warm sun or lie in the shadows of the trees .

In silvassa, you can see traces of the portuguese rule, an old church
