History knows Cellular Jail as the Kala Pani (black waters), as it has witnessed the darkest days of the freedom struggle. The prison was used by the British especially to exile political prisoners to the remote archipelago. As you get down from the car and walk towards the prison gate, you will see the massive structure which is quite intimidating. Once you make your way through the gates and enter the main holding area you would see an old pupil tree which has seen everything, the rise of the massive structure, the torture and pain of the freedom fighters, and the fall of the British Empire.
The jail, completed in the year 1906 acquired the name ‘Cellular’ because it is entirely made up of individual cells for the solitary confinement. It originally was a seven prolonged, puce-colored building with central-tower acting as its fulcrum and a massive structure comprising honeycomb like corridors. The building was subsequently damaged and presently three out of the seven wings are intact. As you walk down these corridors it will make you nostalgic and fill your heart with patriotism. You can even walk into the scanty cells to get a feel of it. The Cellular Jail today houses a Freedom Fighters Photo and Exhibition Gallery, Art Gallery, Netaji Gallery and a Library on Freedom Movement. To pay homage to the freedom fighters and martyrs who had given up everything for our freedom, an eternal flame of freedom – ‘Swatantrya Jyot’ has been instituted in the Jail.
Don’t miss the Sound and Light show in the Cellular Jail which narrates the saga of the Indian freedom struggle, brought alive through sound and light effect. There are two shows in the evening (English & Hindi).

Viper is a very small island across the naval base in Port Blair and derives its name from the vessel ‘Viper’ in which Captain Archibald Blair came to these islands in 1768. Historians believe the vessel met with an accident and its wreckage was abandoned near the island.
Before the Cellular jail was built, Viper was used to imprison convicts and political prisoners and had witnessed the worst of time. Over the years Viper Island’s name is lost in history, but still today the remnants of the gallows will make you feel the pain which our freedom fighters went through.
You can go around the Island exploring the beauty and essence of nature.
