Cellular Jail Kalapani Jail in Portblair

Cellular Jail, Port Blair

Cellular Jail was a colonial prison in Andaman and Nicobar islands. Shri Moraji Desai then prime minister of India declared the Cellular Jail as a national monument on 11th February 1979. Cellular Jail was constructed to deal effectively with the freedom fighters who revolted against the British rule during India's first war of independence. A Light and sound show happens daily in the evening in Cellular Jail. 

This site being located just opposite to Ross Island, the Administrative Head Quarters of the British, was found more suitable for construction of the Jail. It was also better suited in terms of security of the jail, as more than half of the outer wall was bounded by sea

Andaman Exploration

Our Andaman Travel Plan

Day 1:

We arrived at Veer Savarkar International Airport and we were greeted by our tour guide. Checked into the hotel and had breakfast. Later we visited the Cellular Jail. We need minimum 2 Hours to explore the Cellular Jail. It will be good to hire a guide for Rs:300.00 to know more about the history of Cellular Jail. In the afternoon our plan was to visit Ross Island. But since the sea was rough we couldn't go to Ross Island. We returned to our hotel and took rest for some time. Evening around 6.30 PM, we again went to Cellular Jail to watch the Light and Sound Show. The light and sound show is available in English and Hindi, but based on weekdays.
