Things to do
Explore Port Blair - The gateway to the Andaman and Nicobar Island, Port Bair is a hotspot for a glimpse into colonial India. Green tropical forests and rugged coastline make it much more than an arrival and departure city.
Cellular Jail and light and sound show (Secrets of Cellular Jail) -A legacy of colonial punishment by solitary confinement, stories around the Cellular Jail tell of political prisoners from the Indian mainland involved in India's Independence movement. Originally a building with bricks from Burma, the prison had seven wings to hold prisoners. Three storeys tall, the prison had no dormitories but 696 individual cells. It was named 'Celular Jail' because of the solitary cells that prevented the prisoners from communicating with each other.
