Set in 1803, this prison is an important landmark in the history of not just Vellore but that of entire India. A number of Indian luminaries like Thiru. Rajaji, Thiru C.N. Annadurai, Thiru. K. Kamaraj, as well as former presidents of India such as Thiru. V. V. Giri, Thiru and R. Venkataraman have served their prison terms here.
