This place has an enormous importance as this was the landmark place where the real fight against Britishers started by M K Gandhi. Dandi was the destination where Gandhi broke the law by picking up the pinch of salt from here and this was an indication to British rule that they will not stop until they get the full freedom. This is not a sightseeing or roam around place but has a spiritual value for all Indians. Although the route to Dandi from Navsari (a small city nearby) is just wonderful, roads covered with tree on both the sides. In monsoon, you may have an unforgettable ride!
