The Cellular Jail (also known as Kālā Pānī, literally 'Black water', a term for the deep sea and hence exile) situated in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands (India) was completed in 1906. The prison was known to house many notable Indian activists during the struggle for India's independence.

The Cellular Jail in Port Blair is symbolic of the hardships faced by the Indians in their endeavor to attain freedom from their colonial rulers. The jail became infamous throughout the world for the inhuman treatment meted out to the inmates by the jail officials. This monument stands and reflects the tenacity of the Indians, who were struggling to attain freedom from the shackles of the British rule.
