Historically known as kaala paani, the jail was used by the British to imprison political prisoners. The most famous freedom fighter to be imprisoned here was V.D. Savarkar. Its always amazing to look into our non independence era, and this jail is one of the live examples that reminds us of the existence of that era. One can easily imagine the extremities the prisoners used to go through when they were put behind those iron bars in Kaala Paani.
