Best Time to Visit: October to March

Dandi is situated on the coastline near the Surat city of Gujarat. The place is associated with the famous Dandi March organized by the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. Owing to the fact that the place was the venue for an important campaign in the National Freedom Struggle of India, it has become a major excursion from Surat. It is a small hamlet known as a salt center. In the year 1930, Mahatma Gandhi organized the Dandi March to revolt against the salt laws imposed by the British Government.

He organized the campaign based on the principles of non violence and boycott. Under the Civil Disobedience Movement, Gandhiji and his 78 Satyagrahis decided to march from the Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad to the Dandi village. All of them covered a distance of 240 miles on foot. On reaching the salt center in the remote hamlet, they manufactured their own salt in defiance of the tax levied by the government. This was a historic moment in the freedom fighting period.

The hamlet of Dandi was once the location for one of the major Satyagrah campaigns in the country. Today, it has become a quintessential travel and tourism destination to be visited by the proud Indians. The followers of Gandhiji treat Dandi as a holy place. People come and pay their homage to all the great souls who sacrificed their lives for the country. When you go to Gujarat, make sure to visit Dandi and relive the time of valor, sacrifice and determination and the fervor of dying for their country.
