Salt has been an important part in lives of Indians. Mahatma Gandhi started his freedom moment with his "Labana Satyagraha" from Dandi.
Britishers had built the Salt House in 1847-48 and the Collectorate was functioned from this house till new building was built. River 'Kathajodi' was the main transit source for the commercial commodities. The length of the buildings is 190' with 66 pillars. Presently the building is used as Courts of Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrates. The building had an aristocratic look with 3 guns standing as guards. Unfortunately the architecture of the building has been completely disfigured with many brickworks and structures.Indeed it is a sad commentary on the attitude of people who feel no need to preserve our history & culture.
