About Cellular Jail in Andaman

First opened in 1906, Cellular Jail in Andaman is located in the city of Port Blair. It served as a solitary confinement for exiled political prisoners during the British colonial rule and now it’s a national independence memorial. Isolated from the Indian mainland, this jail in Port Blair was popular known as Kala Pani. The complex houses a museum which chronicles the struggle of Indian freedom fighters.

The jail is now open to public viewing as a National Memorial, and its museum gives one a glimpse of years of India’s struggle for freedom. Notable freedom fighters put up here included Batukeshwar Dutt, Babarao Savarkar, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, Diwan Singh Kalepani, and Fazl-e-Haq Khairabadi.

The building had seven straight wings each leading up to a tower in the middle. The jail was turned into a National Memorial in 1969. Its museum displays several galleries on the ground floor and another wing dedicated to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose on the first floor. The Govind Ballabh Pant Hospital is also located within the jail complex.
