English: Daman is a city in Diu district in the Union Territory of Daman and Diu, India. The district is an island lying off the south coast of Gujarat's Kathiawar peninsula, separated from the mainland by a tidal creek. It has an area of 40 km², and a population of 44,110 (2001 census). Daman is divided by the Daman Ganga River into two parts namely Nanidaman (Nani meaning "small") and Motidaman (Moti meaning "big"). Ironically, Nanidaman is the larger of the two towns. It is the downtown area containing most of the major hospitals, supermarkets, major residential areas etc. While Motidaman is mainly the old city inhabited mostly by the fishing communities and government officers. Both Nanidaman and Motidaman are connected to each other by two bridges. Although there is no public airport in the area, the Indian Coast Guard operates the small Daman Airport which is sometimes used by public companies.
