Dadra is located 6 km west of Silvassa, the capital of union territory. Dadra consists of Dadra town and two other villages.
Until 1954, Dadra was part of Portuguese India. Under Portuguese rule, Dadra formed a freguesia (administrative parish) of the Nagar Haveli concelho (municipaliy). In turn, the Nagar Haveli concelho was part of the Daman district.
