More about Andaman Cellular Jail (Kala Pani), Andaman and Historical Information
The Cellular Jail, also known as Kaala Pani, was a colonial prison in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India. The British Empire used the prison to detain political prisoners to the remote islands. While the prison itself was built between 1896 and 1906, the British empire used the islands as prisons since the days of the Indian Rebellion in 1857.
The prison building had seven wings, with a tower at the centre to serve as an intersection and for guards to keep watch over the inmates. It was called cellular jail because of its solitary nature, which prevented prisoners from communicating with each other.
