Lovely heritage place

Japanese bunkers are built on Ross Island in Port Blair. Although tsunami has hit the island really bad but still the bunkers are still intact. This island was under Japan army for a short while during world war 2 and the bunkers were built during that reign. Nice place to visit. Beautiful view and 30 mins boat ride from Port Blair.

Relive a bygone era

The place is open during day time and there is a sound and light show in the evening. In order to see the island full it is prudent to reach the island in the morning first boat. Using the electrical vehicle to see the places of historical significance can save time and effort especially if the family comprise of aged members.

Very nice place to spend holidays

Port Blair is a very nice place to spend holidays. You will get lots of knowledge about Andaman culture and know about the British jail where our freedom fighters were kept.

A must visit place just to see the Sound & Light Show

Since we were having sufficient time after our visit to various destinations in A&N islands. We decided to pay a visit to this place in the evening. The tickets to this place (For ferry & sound & light show) will have to be bought separately which was arranged for us by our tourist guide Mr. Imlus. Though we didn't expect much from this place and were willing to just pass away the extra time which we had in hand, were altogether taken by surprise when we reached the destination.The Japanese bunkers is just on the forefront of the island which also has numerous British remains telling you various stories of their own. A beautiful photogenic location. The place also has numerous deers, rabbits and other light hearted animals which every individuals would be glad to have company of.The most surprising element for us was the Sound & light show which began in the island. The music for this show was composed by none other than our very own Shankar Mahadevan. The music was 7D (through Bose Speakers). The light was 7D which felt realistic to the naked eyes.Not to say that each individual who visited this place along with us had no words to describe the show but to applaud the great work by Indian & Foreign Artists and Technicians.We thought we would have missed this great show hadn't we were having the flight only next day.

Japanese bunkers are present throughout the island

Andaman had been invaded by the Japanese to maintain a stronghold and they are a part of history but it's very sad to say many have been lost in the pages of time due to ill maintenance. One need not separately visit them but can find them on the way to various tourist spots. Some are near the Corbyn beach.

Just a structure

Just a structure at Corbyn's Cove beach, laced with history. Can be visited when you visit the beach. The same were erected during Japanese occupation of Port Blair during the second world war.

Just a visit

This is one bunker on Ross Island. Difficult to see down. Nothing much except that it signifies a time when Japanese captures and Controlled Andamans. Just see it once, in fact it is on the front part near entrance and carry on with the trip to beautiful island.
