Its a thrilling experience to visit a prison (without committing any crime I mean), that too if the Prison is some 170 years old!!!It started as a transit camp for prisoners being taken to other major prisons, especially the Cellular Jail in Andaman and Nicobar. Closed in 2007, Govt is going to demolish this prison and now its open to public.
Approach road to the prison, feel is like a tourist place with lots of people of all age groups, vendors
The Gallows, last hanging happened in 1975
