Situated in the Bay of Bengal, Port Blair is the capital city of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The city lies on the hilly southeastern sea coast of South Andaman Island and serves as the entry point for visiting the Andamans. Surrounded by the rugged yet beautiful coastlines, Port Blair is famous for the historic cellular jail, Chatham sawmill, zoo housing rare species of birds and other small islands like Corbyn’s Cove, Wandoor, Ross Island, Viper Island etc which were once home to British colonists.
