Derived from the Portuguese word, “Silva” meaning wood, Silvassa was originally a dominion of the Maratha Dynasty. Known for its peaceful beauty and charm, Silvassa was gifted to the Portuguese in 1779. It remained a Portugese colony for 175 years until 1954 when it joined the union territory of Dadra & Nagar Haveli in 1954.

Silvassa is a tranquiltown, with the meandering Daman Ganga river whispering through it, amidst lush green forests, tall trees and distant hills. Silvassa’s rich cultural heritage is showcased by several tourist attractions spanning 3 centuries, and a vibrant and diverse ethnic folk culture.
