Well, we recommend this trip to everyone who is visiting the Andaman Islands. Especially on the day of arrival as most travellers land in the islands around the afternoon. Cellular Jail is a national memorial, and it is a must-visit attraction that reminds us of the hardship our freedom fighters had to go through for the freedom that we are enjoying today.
The Andaman Islands were used by the British to exile notorious criminals immediately after the First War of Independence. Earlier known as ‘Kalapani’, the Cellular Jail is located in the capital city of Port Blair.

The Cellular Jail does not need an introduction as it stays in all of our hearts as a national memorial.
The trip begins at the hotel/resort where you will be staying. Our chauffeur attends you at your hotel and takes you to Cellular Jail, after reaching Cellular Jail our team will hand over the entry tickets and will guide you towards the entrance.
You then enter into the Cellular Jail to explore various cells and the architecture that was carefully thought of while constructing the Cellular Jail. The cell of one of the famous freedom fighter Veer Savarkar Ji can also be seen at Cellular Jail.
In case you want to capture the minute history and details of that era then you can avail a guide inside Cellular Jail. The guide inside the jail will be an additional cost usually less than 1000 Rupees for a small size group.
