"Safari to Silvassa"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Nov 16, 2013
The overall experience is good. A nice to place to spend some quality time with your family and friends. In a radius of 20-30 kms all the places of tourist interest are located. It is advisable to book a resort or hotel providing a complete package with meals as finding good restaurants top eat is a challenge

"Hotel Madhuban"

  • Posted Feb 3, 2013
Silvassa is a good destination for short, weekend visit. Before you visit, take a look at the details of the place in the website of Union Teritory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli. A small, tribe-dominated area for short, peaceful stay, Weather is pleasant, though somewhat dry.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: There is a number of hotels in Silvassa, starting from low- to High Range. We stayed at Hotel Madhuban, a budget hotel for short stay, and it was close to Madhuban Dam. If you stay in this hotel, don't miss the Prawns cooked in Malwani style. Within 7 km, there is Versona Lion Safary. Not to miss the boating at Dudhni dam. You can shop some tribal artifacts and specialty 'Worli' paintings from tribal villages on the way or from the art gallery at the city center

Activities & things to do: Plan for a short, max two day trip for silvassa. you can cover all the sightseeing within that time. A must watch: sunset at Dudhni Dam.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: We traveled from Pune and it took almost 5 hours to reach Silvassa. Best route from Pune is to reach Mumbai by Pune -Mumbai Expressway, and from there Thane-Airoli-Virar-Manor to Vapi through Mumbai-Ahmedabad Highway. From Vapi, take left to reach Silvassa. Road is good in this route, and better take a print out of full road map from Google Maps!!

Silvassa Info

  • State: Dadra & Nagar Haveli
  • Famous for/as: Hill
Silvassa is the capital of the Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli. It is situated 32 m above sea level. The city comprises large number of factories and industries, which also makes it the economic centre of Dadra and Nagar Haveli.

Valsad District of Gujarat surrounds Silvassa on its west, while the Thane District of Maharashtra surrounds it on its east, south and north. In the north-east are the hilly terrains of the Sahyadri Mountains. The total area covers 491 square km.

The name of the city is derived from a Portuguese word ‘Silva’ that means ‘wood’. The population of the place comprises mostly tribals. The hand made smoking pipes made by these tribals is a famous product of the place. The Portuguese and Marathas founded the city of Dadra and Nagar Haveli in 1779.

The place was a group of 72 villages that the Marathas gifted to the Portuguese. The Portuguese ruled the place until its liberation in 1954. After their rule, an administrator took over the city for some time. Later on, it was merged in the Indian union as a Union Territory, on 11th August 1954.

The agricultural products of Silvassa include rice, pulses and fruit crops. In Silvassa, one can see Warli Culture, which is a mix of Marathi and Gujarati along with the local Christian and Portuguese residents of the place. It is also a festival rich city and the main festivals celebrated here include Id-Ul-Zuha, Muharram, Vasant Panchmi, Holi, Mahashivratri, Ram Navami, Deepawali, Christmas, etc.

The place also offers plenty of tourist attractions like Tadkeshwara Temple, the Church of Our Lady of Piety, the Vanganga Lake, Khanvel, Hirwa Van, Haveli, and the Tribal Cultural Museum. The Tadkeshwara Temple is a historical Lord Shiva Temple situated at the banks of the River Sakartod.

The Vanganga Lake is situated 5 km from Silvassa and its wooden bridges, jogging paths, paddleboats and thatched huts make it an ideal picnic spot. The Hirwa Van is a garden situated on the Silvassa Dadra Road. Haveli is a monument where the history of Dadra and Nagar Haveli is designed in wood and stone. The Tribal Cultural Museum of Silvassa is a home to ancient masks, musical apparatus, life-size statues and various fishing gadgets.
