As I kept wandering about the various wings and corridors of the Cellular Jail, I came upon the Cellular Jail Museum.
This is where one can see life size models that depict the life of a Cellular Jail inmate.
The prisoners were punished in various ways. For a certain type of crime, they were whiplashed by the jail officers and made to break huge rocks into small stones for hours.
Then, the other punishment was to strip the prisoner, make him stand on the main portico and whiplash him till he fell unconscious. This was done to send a lesson of fear to the other jail inmates.
Then, the most infamous one was to get the prisoner to grind groundnut/palm oil and whip him if he stopped due to fatigue or pain.
