An important commercial hub during the British Rule, Aberdeen was dotted with prosperous shops, an array of well-built houses and government offices. From the year 2016, a heritage walk has been initiated in Aberdeen in order to make the tourist learn about the culture, tradition, oral history and other associated stories of the place. The Heritage Walk is for almost 1 km that includes 9 points that can be covered in an hour. Beginning from Netaji Club Ground, the walk covers places like Clock Tower, Police Temple, Police Masjid, Police Mandir, Supply Barrack Lane, Andaman Club and finally concludes at Development Commissioner’s Bungalow.
Auto Rickshaws, buses, mini buses and taxis are available for reaching Aberdeen in Port Blair.
Witness historic places like the spot where Subhash Chandra Bose hoisted the flag and declared it to be the first Indian Territory to be freed from foreign rule. One can also visit the first religious centres in Andaman.
Since the weather in Port Blair remains quite pleasant during November to March, it ideal to plan this heritage walk at this time.
