"It's a very nostalgic place for Indians, especially the ones during whose generation, India flight for independence. There are very informative guides here who guide you and provide you with every known piece of information they know. Towards 7 pm, there's a light and sound sir show that narrates the incidents and memories the jail holds. The place has been well maintained and is usually crowded with visitors. You can also catch a good view of Ross island from the top of the jail's towers. Worth a visit for anybody in Port Blair. "

"It's a magnificent place, esp. for Indians to visit n understand the struggle that our freedom fighters went through. My advice is to hire one of the guides there, as they would explain all the important events that's happened there Do visit the sound n light show. Although the technicalities (effects) of the show are not great, the story is powerful..."
