Gallows of Viper Island!

Viper Island is not very different from the rest of the Andamans. Like the Andamans, this place is a tropical beauty, but its history is bone-chilling.

Coz, it houses the infamous gallows during India’s pre-independence days.

Perched above a small hillock on the Viper Island, it is hard to imagine that a place with such a brilliant view was actually the sound of death for a lot of people.

All that lies there today are dilapidated red-brick structures and the horrific memories.

It should definitely be an experience going to this place in the dead hour of a full moon night.
