About Viper Island

In proximity to the city of Port Blair lies Viper Island. It is a historical sight where the Britishers used to harbor political prisoners. It has ruins of a gallows atop a hillock. The historical remains of this place attract many visitors. The jail here was abandoned after the Central Jail got constructed. Today, it makes for a serene and beautiful tourist spot which is best for picnics and day-outs. You can get on a cruise originating from Aberdeen Jetty to reach this attraction in Port Blair. The picturesque surroundings of this island exude calm and peace. This small island derives its name from the vessel `Viper' in which Lt. Archibald Blair came to Andaman and Nicobar Islands in 1789. It is believed to have met with an accident, and its wreckage was found near the island.
