Ross Island

This small island stands right across Port Blair, encompassing in a way the entire life of Andamans. The Island served as the Capital from 1858 till 1941, when the Japanese occupied it and converted it into a PoW site. The ruins of the Church and the Chief Commissioner's house among overcrowding vines and aerial roots are the most evocative of the remains.
