Ross Island, Andaman Islands

silversea asia cruise ross island india

Originally chosen by the British as the capital of the Andaman Islands, today Ross Island is characterized by a series of old buildings, left behind from a gilded age of occupancy between 1858 and 1941. Among the relics are a church, bakery, three clubs, printing press, government offices, Chief Commissioner’s house, tennis courts, an ice-making plant and a cemetery – all now in ruins. Since it has been neglected, creeping vines, fig and banyan tree roots overgrow and encase many of the old buildings giving the place a mysterious, haunting and timeless beauty.
