Daman Tourist Places and Site Seeing

Churches
The Se Cathedral in the Moti Darnan fort dates from the 17th century and is totally Iberian. It has recently been renovated and looks quite impressive. The Church of Our Lady of the Rosary has ancient Portuguese tombstones set into its cool, damp floor. The altar is a master piece of intricately carved, gold-painted wood. Light filters through the dusty windows, illuminating wooden panels painted with scenes of Christ and the apostles. The church is not always open; check with the vicar of the Se Cathedral for the key.


Other Attractions
You can walk around the ramparts of the. Nani Daman Fort (Fort of St Jerome). They're a good place from which to watch the fish market and the activity of the small fishing fleet, which anchors alongside. Near the river on the Nani Daman side is an interesting Jain temple.

If you inquire in temple office, a caretaker should be able to show you around. The walls inside are completely covered with glassed-over l8th century murals depicting the life of Mahavira, who lived around 500 BC. It's quite pleasant to wander around the wide streets of the old Moti Daman. The place has a very sleepy atmosphere, and the views across the river to Nani Daman from the ramparts near the lighthouse are not bad.

Places to Stay
Town Area most of the economical hotels are on sea face Rd. 

Places to Eat
The best eating places are in the hotels. A beer will set you back Rs 25 at any of Daman's numerous bars, but most hotels charge more (around Rs 32). If you fancy a drop of port wine, most bars charge about Rs 100 for a bottle.  In February, Daman is noted for papri, boiled and salted sweet peas served wrapped in newspaper. Crab and lobster are in season in October. Tari  palm wine is a popular drink sold in earthenware pots.
