About Sound and Light Show

The Cellular Jail is the most iconic attraction of Port Blair City. Its interiors still echo the pain and sufferings of the freedom fighters of India whose lives withered away within its walls. The Sound and Light Show, performed in the jail, is a harmonious blend of entertainment and history. It tells the dark history of the Andaman Islands and the reason why they were called as ‘Kalapani’ or black waters. This show is perhaps the most famous nighttime entertainment to be found in Port Blair. Lasting for almost 45 minutes, the show is put up as though narrated by an ancient Peepal tree which witnessed the atrocities committed in Cellular Jail. It is showcased in both English and Hindi due to a large number of international visitors in Port Blair.

Historical Context: After the very first battle for independence, in 1857, the British started using the Andaman Islands as a prison for the political leaders of the freedom struggle. Cellular Jail was built on this archipelago towards the end of the 19th century. It was built as a place for the penal stage of the sentence of the prisoners transported to Andaman, where they suffered a period of isolation and harsh treatment.
