Port Blair

Port Blair is the capital of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, a union territory of India located in the Bay of Bengal. It is located about 1,255 km east of the Indian mainland, and about 150 km north of the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The city is spread across two islands, North and South Andaman, and is home to a population of more than 100,000.

Port Blair has a tropical climate, with hot and humid summers and mild winters. The city is surrounded by dense forests and is a popular destination for eco-tourism. There are numerous beaches in and around the city, such as Corbyn’s Cove, Wandoor Beach, and Chidiya Tapu Beach.

The city is home to several historic monuments and sites, including the Cellular Jail, which was used as a prison during the British Raj. The jail is now a national memorial and is open to the public. Other sites of interest include the Samudrika Naval Marine Museum, the Anthropological Museum, and the Forest Museum.

Port Blair was first settled by the British in the late 18th century and was used as a penal colony for Indian freedom fighters. During World War II, the city was occupied by the Japanese, and it was only after the war that it was returned to Indian control. Today, the city is a major port and a hub for trade and tourism.
