The Cellular Jail, also known as Kala Pani, was a colonial prison in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India. The prison was used by the British government for the purpose of exiling political prisoners to the remote archipelago. Many notable activists, including Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, Batukeshwar Dutt, Hare Krishna Konar, Shiv Verma, Yogendra Shukla, Satguru Ram Singh, and Sudhanshu Dasgupta were imprisoned here during the struggle for India's independence. In memory of the brave martyrs, the Cellular Jail authorities organize a light and sound show every Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The light and sound show not only transforms the cellular jail into a beautiful stage of a live performance but also narrates the heart-wrenching history of the independence movement along with the lives of the prisoners in the jail during the British era.
