The Cellular Jail at Port Blair, which is a national heritage site features great galleries.
Painters and artists alike from all over the country have contributed their works here.
These paintings in the Cellular Jail gallery are not only fabulous in design and taste, but are also monumental in helping tourists visualize life in the jail and outside (around Port Blair) during pre-independence days.
While some paintings illustrate the atrocities meted out to the Indian prisoners, the others provide chronicles of the lives of Indian freedom fighters.
Then there are some that show fights between the bows and arrows of the local Andamanese tribes and the guns of the British officers.
