Kalapani Jail reminds us of sacrifices of freedom fighters, despotism of Britishers and seclusion of Andaman and Nicobar Isles. A similar jail is located in Mahbubnagar district. The jail was constructed by Nizam rulers in dense forest to detain freedom fighters. In those days water in Agency areas (forest areas) was known as Kalapani as it was believed that people consuming the water will contract diseases. The jail is located at Mannanur village and Pandit Narendra Ji was lodged at the prison for three years.
