Gandhi Park Overview

Ranked 9 of 41 sightseeing in Port Blair

Gandhi Park in Port Blair is a small and beautiful park with amusement rides, a garden, a small narrow trail around a small lake inside the premises, water sports, historic remains of a Japanese temple and a war bunker.

The Gandhi Park was built in only 13 days around the Delthamani tank which served as Port Blair’s only source of drinking water in those days. This park is a good source of entertainment, especially for children.

Good place to enjoy with family

A well-maintained, garden and park. One of the good places in Andaman & Nicobar. Anyone in need of peace can go there and have a good time with family.

Fishes and Mammals are seen

I didn't find it quite impressive as Im not fond of museum and all. There you can find fish and other sea animals. Fishes are alive but rest of the mammals are dead and preserved.

Snorkelling experience would be a delight

About 1.5 hrs drive from Port Blair, it consists of a further 20 minute ferry to either of the two islands. Would enjoy if you like water, though the crowd can get really noisy and packed. For first timers the limited snorkelling experience would be a delight but there are far better options. The ride back is scenic with a postcard island en route.

Don't waste your time here

It is a simple park as you may find it anywhere, in your city also. Don't waste your time visiting this place. It is a long park without any attraction. Thus, it is recommended not to go there.

Worth visiting

Worth visiting and one should not miss it. well maintained. Situated near the city in Port Blair. Advisable to carry drinking water. Keep some pockets of eatables specially when you are with children.

A Neat & Clean place

The complex offers various aqua-sport facilities like Jet skiing, Banana ride etc. There is also a sea water swimming pool and a change room. A memorial for the Battle of Aberdeen fought between Britishers and Andamanese aboriginals in 1859 is also there, in which an entire tribe was eliminated due to the betrayal of a traitor named Dudh Nath Tewari. Tewari had been given shelter by the aboriginals & their leader also married 2 of his daughters to him, but he colluded against his own saviors & collaborated with Britishers in lieu of his own clemency.

Good place to visit

Start early, may be at 10 am and fill in the form. Pay entry fee of Rs 750 that includes water activities. Bargain for the price to get a good deal!

Amazing experience

Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park is famous for flora and fauna. You can enjoy the speed boating experience here. You need to do the advance booking for boating as it has a limited time and seats. Water is clean and clear and it's was a amazing experience

One of the pleasant places to visit

Really wonderful place to visit here. Spending some times here relaxed your mind completely. Seeing Gandhiji's statue and one Japanese temple over there is a must. Also the park has some fun sections for children.
