About Nani Daman

voted as clean

Nani Daman is a popular tourist attraction, which is situated close to the Gandhi Park and the Nani Daman Jetty. This region comprises a Nani Daman Fort, several churches built in the Gothic style and a lighthouse.

The Nani Daman Fort is spread over an area of about 12,250 sq. m. This fort is also popularly called as the St. Jerome Fort, after the name of the eminent father of the Catholic Church.

There is a gateway at this fort which faces the river, which is also overlooked by a statue of St. Jerome. There is a fish market below the fort nearby which, neatly anchored fishing boats can be seen.

This fort has over 3 bastions and 2 gateways that lead to the nearby Church of Our Lady of the Sea and the Lady of Remedios Church.  An old cemetery is located just next to these churches.

A lighthouse is situated in Nani Daman, which provides a beautiful view of sunset and the Daman Ganga River Bridge. Tourists can also visit the old Jain Temple located within Nani Daman, which features 18th century glass murals and paintings.

"Not maintained at all"

  • 2.50/7
  • Posted Jul 9, 2014
This place is not maintained at all. We stayed in this part of Daman. This is the market area. The goods here are not cheap except for alcohol. The devka beach area is a better place to hangout at night.
