This is a small Island in the harbour named after one of the survey ships 'Viper'. During October 1858, Superintendent J.P. Walker with the help of Indian freedom fighters cleared the jungle and made the Island habitable. By the year 1867, a Jail was constructed with gallows. The inmates were subjected to inhuman treatments like chain gang, coir pounding, grinding of cereals, oil ghani, etc. Sher Ali, the assassin of Lord Mayo was executed here on 11th March, 1872. On the report of the Jail Committee, and after the construction of the Cellular Jail at Atlanta Point, Viper Jail was closed down. After the Japanese occupied the Island, they extracted various materials for their fortifications by dismantling buildings and the Jail. The historical buildings are being currently restored by the Art & Culture Dept. today.
