Cellular Jail

This jail is known as Kalapani (black water) and this place has horrific tales to tell about the Indian Freedom Struggle. This jail was the nightmare for our freedom fighters. The British used this jail to put all political rebels to curb their natural life. Many of our freedom fighters died in this jail itself. The construction of the jail was started in 1896 and completed in 1906. The British brought red bricks from Myanmar. There are seven wings to the building and each and every cell was made in such way that no one can see any other prisoners. There were huge watchtowers from where jailers used to watch the prisoners. The prisoners were confined alone in each cell without seeing anyone. This made most of them mad and this mental agony was made worse by using them as slaves! But now this has become the biggest government hospital in Andaman. Around 40 doctors and 500 beds are available in this hospital. You should never miss this Cellular jail which is now converted into a hospital. It is a tribute to our freedom fighters. There is a beautiful garden in front of it maintained by the authorities.
