The seaside township of Udvada holds a special place in the heart of every Zoroastrian. Udvada sees a regular flow of pilgrims who come to pay obeisance to the Holy Fire of Iranshah Atash Behram, all year round.
Sir J J Dharamshala at Udvada, is ideally located. It enjoys an unobstructed view of the Arabian Sea and is within walking distance to the Atash Behram. The Dharamshala offers an idyllic opportunity for Parsees seeking a night’s Boarding and Lodging in a clean, pleasant, and serene environment. Udvada being just a few Kilometres away from Vapi, Daman and Valsad, even those on a short business trip to any of these places can avail a relaxing stopover at Sir J J Dharamshala.
The newly built Dharamshala, which was inaugurated in March 2013, is housed in a Gr+1 structure and offers individual rooms to suit every budget. While there are 7 Air-conditioned Rooms with private balconies on the 1st floor, there are also 2 large Air-conditioned Family Rooms which can accommodate 5 persons per room. The Non-AC Rooms on the Ground floor are self-contained and have a direct view of the sea.
The Dharamshala also satisfies the needs of the Daytime Traveller by providing Bath and Toilet facilities without the obligation of booking a Room. Lockers are also available for those who wish to safely leave their valuables behind whilst making a visit to the Atash Behram.
A separate Dining Room / TV area is provided on each floor. The Resident Manager offers in-house catering services with wholesome Parsi dishes at affordable rates.
The Dharamshala also accepts Group bookings from those wishing to have a religious ceremony performed in Udvada and simultaneously cater to the culinary requirements of their guests.
Sir J J Dharamshala, which has been extremely popular amongst Parsee devotees, has adequate parking, space for its Guests.
Our Fund has plans to construct a Public Garden on the vacant sea-facing plot. The Trustees believe that by doing so they would not only protect its property but also add value to the pleasant and serene surroundings of Sir J J Dharamshala.
