During the colonial era, the British used to ferry ships and ships of indentured laborers from India, to Mauritius, under their indentured servant scheme. The Aapravasi Ghat is a bunch of buildings on the sea front that served as the immigration department for indentured laborers. During the years the indentured servant scheme was in play, over half a million labor force was shipped to the shores of Mauritius. There is no tourism value as such to these buildings, but it is a landmark in history; you could just stroll around in the area and have a look at some of the original stone buildings.
