Cellular Jail - Review

The Cellular Jail situated in Port Blair is a national memorial and used to house many notable Indian activists during the struggle for India's independence. This is the jail where ‘dangerous criminals’ used to be sent to when they had a ‘Kala Paani ki Saza’ ruling. The jail stands witness to the sufferings of the freedom fighters and patriots of India. Within the jail is a museum, an art gallery and a photo exhibit. The story India’s freedom struggle is brought alive in a moving Son-et-Lumiere (light and sound show) which is shown daily inside the jail compound at 6:00 pm in Hindi and 7:15 pm in English.
