Port Blair is the capital and it is a thriving and bustling little city with a rich history which is very evident everywhere you go. According to Wikipaedia in 1789 the government of Bengal established a penal colony on Chatham Island in the southeast bay of Great Andaman, named Port Blair to honour Lieutenant Archibald Blair of the British East India Company.
A very British looking post box in the Prison grounds. Letters back home ?
We walked around the city and enjoyed seeing the fish market and the goat on the roof. We stayed in a very atmospheric hotel with a great view of the bay and had the best crab curry ever at the restaurant that night. As you can see from the hotel swimming pool crabs get into everything including the baby pool.
How it got there I have no idea
