Chatham Saw Mill, Port Blair
Categories: Historic Sites, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Visit Chatham Saw Mill to see how workers produce timber to meet the local construction requirements. Owned by the state government, the mill was established in 1883 by installing secondhand machinery operated by unskilled labor. Japanese bombs destroyed the entire place during World War II, but it came back to life in the 1950s, salvaging what was functional and reparable. Visitors can also examine the site where the bomb was dropped. Hire a guide to give you detailed insight about the mill's long history and afterwards head to the museum to observe the artifacts and photographs. Because of the mill's vast size, stick close to you companions during your tour.
