The place is submerged in history and its quite enthralling to go over the place and the different written materials on boards at different places with the premises.

The mystery of Kalapaani gets solved once you visit this place. A British era Jail with its unique architecture and torturous design to annihilate freedom fighters and break their fighting spirits. Must see the Light and Sound show as well as it tells you the entire history of the Jail and the Islands.

we took a guide to help us understand the history of the jail and the struggle of the Indian freedom fighters. as per my opinion visiting the jail without a guide will be kind of useless. due to shortage of time we could not see the light and sound sow. but from what we heard , it was a must do activity!

My trip to Andaman was very smooth as we got gopal bhaiya as tour guide. Based on our schedule, he suggested us multiple options to explore different places. We would have missed to cover one or two places if it wasn't for gopals guidance. He arranged vehicle to roam around in Port Blair. He is very humble and friendly. He can guide everything starting from arriving in andaman till departure.You can contact him in this number 9531918600.

The light and sound show was amazing. ,I had goosebumps while watching show.
It's a monument of freedom., it's a lone witness who saw tortures by British people.
Salute to those known and unknown freedom fighters

Cellular jail is a good place to visit though bt i wish it made some changes in its laser and sound show. The show was only sound n sound show and not a light and sound show.
I visited this place in nov end and it was extremely humid and hot. Overall i would say it is must visit to know the history.

New information I didn't know about India's struggle for Independence. Post the visit, ordered books to read more so I can learn more. Guides are decently knowledgeable and charge about 50 bucks a head. Well maintained premises and shocking to learn about the treatment meted out to Indian political prisoners. A must-visit site on your Port Blair visit. For all your Andaman trip planning, do consider the services of Gopal, who runs his own small cab agency, but can also help you with bookings of hotels, sports and other activities. Very friendly, patient and reliable. He can be reached at +91 9531918600
