The Andaman & Nicobar are a group of big and small picturesque islands, a total of 572 inhabited and uninhabited islands, in the South Eastern Part of the Bay of Bengal. They lie along an arc, in a long and narrow broken chain, over a distance nearly 800 kms.

Andaman & Nicobar Islands have been the home of aboriginal tribes since pre-historic times. First settlement by the British took place in 1789, which was later abandoned in 1796. The second settlement was basically a penal settlement, taken up in 1858, the year after the First War of Indian Independence, followed by the settlement of convicts, some criminal tribes from Central and United Provinces, refugees from erstwhile East Pakistan and Sri Lanka as well as ex-servicemen.�

Criminals were deported from mainland to the Cellular Jail - The Indian Bastille, situated on the sea cost of Atlanta Point in the North-Eastern part of Port Blair. Thus these islands were infamously known as the 'Black Water Prison' or 'Kala Pani'.

Andaman and Nicobar Islands were shrouded in mystery for centuries because of their inaccessibility. These are the paragon of beauty and present a landscape full with scenic and picturesque extravaganza. These islands shimmer like emeralds in the Bay of Bengal. The dense forest which cover these islands and the innumerable exotic flowers and birds create a highly poetic and romantic atmosphere.
