The sound and light show is one of the most engaging attractions that Port-Blair has to offer. Aimed at telling the story of the history at cellular jail, it is a perfect blend of both information and entertainment. For those interested in indulging in a brief presentation about India’s heroic freedom struggle the Sound and Light show is definitely worth a visit.
The saga of islands adversities is brought alive inside the jail compound and it lasts around 45 minutes. The show is available in both English and Hindi. For a few it may sound a little old school but the idea of the story being narrated by the voice of an ancient Pippal tree is refreshing. The entire show brings up the dark history of the islands and reminds us exactly why these beautiful islands were once called Kalapani (black waters).
