Introduction
 
This beautiful harbor was discovered in 1788 by a British officer named Archibald Blair. At first, he named it Port Cornwallis. Later, it was named after him.
 
During the colonial period, Portblair was used as a Penal Colony. People who protested against the British rulers were sent here. It was the most severe punishment a person could receive those days. The construction of the prison building started in 1896 because the necessity of a new prison was felt after the revolution started to rise in 19th century.
