  • One of the most famous attractions here is the cellular jail that is known for the struggle that Indians had to go through in order to get their country free. The jail is known to provide solitary confinement to the prisoners and each of the prison cells faced the back side of the other cells so the prisoner could not have a chance to see other people.
