Cellular jail, a colonial prison was used by the British especially to exile political prisioners.

We took a guide to know more on the faqs around cellular jail.

It had seven straight wings each connected to a tower in the middle giving the whole construction a look of something like a bicycle wheel with each wing attached with the centre tower like a spoke of the wheel. The front of one wing faces the back of another so that one inmate in a wing cannot see or communicate with another inmate in any of the adjacent wings. Even the cells in a wing were in a row so that inmates in the same wing also cannot communicate or see each other. Over the years, the building was damaged and only three wings and the tower remains.

Ross and Smith, twin islands joined by a natural sand bridge which remains submerged in water during High tide but you can walk across from one island to the other during low tide. Its an experience of a lifetime, strolling down the sand bridge with the vast Bay of Bengal stretched on your both sides.
