Devka Beach and jampor beach Daman meri jaan?

There's a beautiful place to see ... Its a good place for time spent and most beautiful things about Daman its very nice Culture in Daman ... We love Daman"history of daman":-During the beginning of this millennium, the region in and around Daman was ruled by the Kushana Emperor. From the 8th to 13th century, Daman and Diu, which was a part of Goa was a stronghold of the Chowda Rajputs who were banished by the Waghalas who in turn were expelled by Muslims in 1330. History of Daman is quite fascinating for every historian across the world.

Nothing much to do

Nani Daman is basically the city. There is nothing much to do. Just a lot of liquor shops. The best place to get liquor if you want to. Also don't go there expecting to shop as there is nothing there.

Too much humid and nothing good about this place

My whole visit was screwed firstly due to the humidity and then because of the local people over there. The localities there are not at all cooperative and the place also is not worth visiting. The only thing people visit Daman is because of the drinking facility available there. DO NOT VISIT place.

Street shopper's and Food Lover's Paradise

The new city, or, residential part of the city is called Nani Daman. (Nano means small in Gujarati, hence the name). It is a beautiful, well planned and quiet city. The local Dubai Market has everything you can possibly need, at a reasonable price. Nani Daman is also known for the amazing food joints and super cheap alcohol. Do not forget to visit the Nani Daman Fort.

Not maintained at all

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.
