Dadra ad Nagar Haveli /ˈdɑːdrɑː/ & /ˌnʌɡərˌhəˈvɛli/ (Marathi: दादरा आणि नगर हवेली, Gujarati: દાદરા અને નગર હવેલી, Portuguese: Dadrá e Nagar-Aveli) is a Union Territory in wastren Indie. Nagar Haveli is wedged atween Maharashtra an Gujarat, whauras Dadra is a enclave 1 km NW surroondit bi Gujarat. The shared caipital is Silvassa. The lairger pairt spans a lairge, roughly c-shaped aurie 12–30 kilometres up-river frae the ceety o Daman on the coast, at the centre o which, an thus ootside the territory, is the Madhuban reservoir.

Dadra an Nagar Haveli (DNH) are in the middle o the quite undulatin wattershed o the Daman Ganga River, which efter the reservoir flows through Nagar Haveli an later furms the short soothren border o Dadra. The touns o Dadra an Silvassa lie on the north bank o the river. The Wastren Ghats range rises tae the east, an the fithills o the range occupy the eastren portion o the destrict. While the territory is landlocked, the Arabian Sea lies juist tae the wast in Gujarat.
