Dandi is a small village located on the coast of the Arabian Sea in Navsari district, Gujarat, India. It is best known as the site of Mahatma Gandhi's Salt March in 1930, a pivotal event in India's struggle for independence from British rule. The Salt March was a nonviolent protest against the British salt tax, which imposed a heavy burden on poor Indians. Gandhi led a march of thousands of people from Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad to Dandi, where they broke the salt laws by collecting seawater and evaporating it to make salt. This act of defiance sparked a nationwide movement of civil disobedience and helped to galvanize support for India's independence movement. Dandi is a popular tourist destination, and there are several memorials and museums dedicated to the Salt March. The Dandi Beach is a beautiful stretch of sand and is a popular spot for swimming and sunbathing. There are also several temples and mosques in the village.
