The original Cellular Jail contains seven regions with the central region having a tower. There were four floors with first three floors for cells and the fourth floor functioned as the watch tower. One can see here the execution room where the freedom fighters were hanged by the colonial rulers.

Once you are in Andaman, you feel like you are somewhere lost in the Caribbean! The perfect beaches with clear blue water makes it an amazing place for scuba diving, snorkeling and just relaxing with a cold beer in your hand.
