The delightful group of tiny islands is one of the most fascinating and picture perfect of the Nicobar group. Take a walk on the golden sands or enjoy a relaxing nap under the sun shade while the cool breeze gently sways by making a melodious tonal pattern. The best part of the jaunt is to stay at a local home with residents, enjoying every bit of the localised hospitality.
The historically significant monument was built by the British during colonial rule, to penalise Indian freedom fighters termed as 'dangerous' and a threat to the 'Raj'. The entire structure consisted of seven storeys each with cells meant to house a single inmate. The jail is witness to the extreme brutalities served upon the freedom fighters by the British. The amusing light and sound show with the backdrop of the phantasmal structure is dedicated to the memories of countless individuals who perished or faded away in solitary confinement.
