Also well known as Kala Pani, Cellular Jail of Andaman and Nicobar Islands was the prison known to house several remarkable Indian activists during the British Rule. This jail reflects one of the murkiest chapters of in the colonial rule's history. This architecturally splendid jail was constructed in 1906. On the arrival of Port Blair, the cellular jail is the first sight that greets the tourists.

Along with reciting the heart rendering tale of resistance, this edifice is 3 storied and holds 7 wings. This building has 696 cells. Without a doubt, this structure is one of the most historically prominent buildings in India. For this reason and intent, Cellular Jail is a must-visit spot while on the trip to Andaman.
