Ross Island, a short boat ride from Port Blair in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, is known for its historical significance and the remnants of British colonial structures. Often referred to as the Island of Ruins, Ross Island was the administrative headquarters of the British during their rule in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands until an earthquake in 1941 led to its evacuation.

Visitors to Ross Island can explore the island's remains, including the British-era buildings, churches, and the Chief Commissioner's residence. While many of the structures are in a state of decay, they provide a fascinating glimpse into the island's colonial past. The Ross Island Museum also showcases photographs and displays that narrate the island's history.
