This small island, less than a square kilometre in size, lies right across Port Blair. This island served as a capital to the British from 1858 to 1941, when the Japanese occupied it and converted it into a Prisoner of War (POW) site. The main attractions are the remnants of a church, the chief commissioner's house, a cathedral and the graveyard of Britishers. The Aberdeen jetty in Port Blair has ferries that take visitors to Ross Island on all days except Wednesday. A sound and light show narrating the history of the island and its many inhabitants gives a very informative insight into the part of history that the textbooks often miss. The tickets for the boat ride, island entry and sound and light show can be purchased from the reception counter of Directorate of Tourism. Ross Island was named after marine surveyor, Daniel Ross. It was renamed Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Island in December 2018.
