Some places of Andaman and Nicobar islands reek of a strong colonial past for instance The Cellular Jail and Ross island. Famously known as “Kaala Paani”, the Cellular Jail is now just a remnant of a haunting past. The gallows and walls of the jail is a poignant reminder of a painful past. In the erstwhile days of British Raj, the jail imprisoned notable freedom fighters like Veer Savarkar, Yogendra Shukla and Batukeshwar Dutt. The jail is now a memorial monument and it hosts a light and sound show in reverence of the prisoners imprisoned here.
Ross island, now renamed Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose island, is in complete shambles that imparts this place a vintage look. Some of the important places of tourist attraction are the Presbyterian Church, Officer’s Quarters, Chief Commissioner’s Bungalow and the Cemetery.
The islands are dotted with several museums that hark back to the bygone days like the Anthropological Museum and Samudrika Naval Marine Museum at Port Blair and Forest Museum at Chatham island.
