Dahanu

A quiet seaside town with a sprawling, uncluttered beach, is situated in Thane District. The Dahanu-Bordi stretch is 17 kms.

This once-barren land thrived under Irani settlers, an earthy people. Dahanu is lined with fruit orchards and is famous for its chickoo fruit. Accessible from Dahanu is Udwada - an important place of worship for the Zoroastrians - with a large, beautiful temple that houses their sacred fire. An amazing fact but true, this fire has been kept alive for almost a thousand years.

Getting There: Dahanu Road is the nearest railhead, which is just 2 and 1/2 hours from Mumbai. By road, Mumbai is 145 kms away.
