Dadra Nagar haveli Tourism

Dadra and Nagar Haveli is a union territory in Western India. It is composed of two separate geographical entities: Nagar Haveli, wedged between Maharashtra and Gujarat, and, 1 km to the northwest, the smaller enclave of Dadra, which is surrounded by Gujarat. Silvassa is the capital of Dadar and Nagar Haveli.
The area of Dadra and Nagar Haveli is spread over 491 square kilometres (190 sq mi). Though landlocked between Gujarat to the north and Maharashtra to the south, it is close to the Western coast of India (between 20° 0’ and 20° 25’ N latitude and between 72° 50’ and 73° 15’ E longitude), and the Arabian Sea can be reached via Vapi in Gujarat.

The Union Territory comprises two separate geographical units. The larger part - Nagar Haveli - spans a roughly c-shaped area upriver from the city of Daman on the coast, at the centre of which, straddling the border with Gujarat, is the Madhuban reservoir. The smaller enclave of Dadra is a short distance to the northwest.
Dadra and Nagar Haveli is in the middle of the undulating watershed of the Daman Ganga River, which flows through Nagar Haveli and later forms the short southern border of Dadra. The towns of Dadra and Silvassa lie on the north bank of the river. The Western Ghats range rises to the east, and the foothills of the range occupy the eastern portion of the district.
