Cellular jail

Cellular jail is an echo of the patriotic days of the century long Indian freedom struggle. It took the Britishers 50 years (1850 – 1906) to build this star shaped, 696-celled cellular jail - with 7 wings – each with 3 storey. They used it to imprison those freedom fighters who revolted against the colonial rule. The jail, now a national monument, has an “independence museum” within its premises. And the ‘watch tower view” which enables a bird’s eye view of the Island is a must-see highlight of this towering monument.
