This popular tourist spot at Andman group of islands screams of its grave history (pun intended). Tourists are awestruck at the star shaped architecture of the building that was kept as a prison for those extremists who were the greatest threat to the British supremacy in colonial India. The most notable amongst these were Fazl-e-Haq Khairabadi, Yogendra Shukla, Batukeshwar Dutt, Babarao Savarkar, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, Sachindra Nath Sanyal, Bhai Parmanand, Sohan Singh and Subodh Roy and many others.
In many of the Hollywood Horror flicks, there is a mental hospital where patients were kept isolated for experimentation and coercion under the pretext of treating them where they turned into ghosts as isolation deprived the living from the worldly experience. At this Cellular jail on the "cursed" Andman islands the inmates were kept in isolation not only from the rest of the world but also from each other. This architecture marvel was so constructed that the front of one of its wings faces the back of the other. There was a single ventilator in each of it's tiny cells that was much above the line of sight of its inmates who were kept tied down.
